Coordinated by our programs Manager: khethisa Borotho
Facilitated by the Meals Program Coordinator: Precious Ndlovu
Meals one of the struggles of life in the disadvantaged community of Kliptown after the Pandemic of Covid19, it is also one of the struggles of life in Kliptown is inadequate nutrition for growing young bodies. With the high rate of unemployment in the community of Kliptown, some families cannot provide 3 meals a day for their families which is a huge problem for especially for our young people who are still in school. We as Each One Teach One have created this kind of a program that helps to support disadvantaged families who have kids.
MEALS 4 ALL- targeting young people who are going to school, providing them with lunch boxes and 3 meals a day for each child and as well as other members of the community that faces the same problem and challenges, the aim for such programs is to become supportive figures and never turn a blind eye on such situations and also to meet the needs of other disadvantaged families through providing thing such as the school uniform for kids.
In the morning before they go to school they eat breakfast, after breakfast they get their lunch boxes for lunch at school, after school they also eat their last meals for the day. These meals really play an important role in our community because some of the kids really come from poor backgrounds whereby they only eat once and that only at night.
Starting 2022 with a number of 320 young people, the number was going up each and every day due to the support and attention we have been giving to the kids. Some people even requested a short presentation for the work we have been for the past years before they could register their kids with the centre. Currently we have a number of 380 young people and more keep on coming but due to shortage of space we have to turn down some applications.
Our meals for all program caters for +/- 300 meals for Breakfast, we give out 380 lunch boxes if all the kids are going to school, then we dish out +/- 300 plates for lunch before the kids start their program and their homework. Please see pictures in the second last page.
