Meals for 1850 Young Students in Pakistan

Meals for 1850 Young Students in Pakistan

Summary

In 1985, the NUR Community Outreach Program (NCOP) was launched with the mission "to work towards poverty alleviation by creating access to better education, health and economic development". As part of the NUR Community Outreach Program, the NUR Food Bank was started to provide meals on a weekly basis to every child at the NUR Foundation Schools. In the future, we aim to provide such meals on a daily basis in order to alleviate the hunger crisis among the school going children.

Challenge

The children at NUR Foundation Schools come from penurious backgrounds where the parents are unable to provide the basic necessities of life to their children like food. Hence, we at NUR Foundation realized that for the children to be able to focus on their studies, they must be provided with a healthy meal. However, due to the lack of funds, the meals are provided on a weekly rather than daily.

Solution

The daily provision of healthy meals to the underprivileged students at NUR Foundation schools is necessary for the children to be able to focus and excel in their studies.

Long-Term Impact

The alleviation of hunger and the improvement of children's health would eventually bring down Pakistan Hunger Score and will bode well for the socio-economic success of the nation.
