Summary

"Baon" is a Filipino word for packed meals prepared by parents for their kids to bring to school. Sadly, 10 out of 30 kids in the Philippines don't get the food they need every day. Since learning depends on good nutrition, these kids may never reach the same potential for learning as well-nourished kids. #ProjectBaon will ensure the provision of healthy baon to malnourished kids at Plainview Elementary School, Mandaluyong City.

Challenge

Sixty-six million primary school-aged children attend classes hungry across the developing world says the World Food Program. In the Philippines, 31.2% of Filipino children aged 5-10 are underweight based on a 2015 Food and Nutrition Research Institute report. Help us feed these children so they can concentrate more on their studies rather than their rumbling stomachs.

Solution

Our feeding program, #ProjectBaon, will ensure that children in poor communities in the Philippines are provided with a healthy baon. The children we serve belong to families with an income of less than P200 or $4/day. We screen and identify malnourished children and provide supplementary school meals - a packed lunch with fortified rice, meat, vegetables, and fruits, to meet their nutritional needs.

Long-Term Impact

Poor nutrition and health among schoolchildren contribute to the inefficiency of the educational system. Nutritional and health status are powerful influences on a child's learning and on how well a child performs in school. #ProjectBaon will provide consistent nutritious school meals to children in Plainview Elementary School so that they can reach their full potential for growth and learning. Join us as we FEED, NOURISH and EMPOWER these children.
