by Reach Out and Feed Philippines Inc.
Vetted

Summary

"Baon" is a Filipino word for packed meals prepared by parents for their kids going to school. Sadly 1 out of 3 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 daily provision of a healthy "baon"- nutritious packed lunch & snacks to malnourished kids living in 10 poor communities in the Philippines.

Challenge

"The Department of Education (DepEd) revealed that more than half million Filipino students in kindergarten and elementary levels currently enrolled in public schools are considered "severely wasted."... "This malnutrition makes Filipino children the third poorest and most disadvantaged sector in the Philippines, next to fishermen and farmers. - (See more at: http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/296884/news/specialreports/more-than-half-million-pinoy-kids-suffer-from-severe-malnutrition#sthash.)

Solution

Through #ProjectBaon,we will work with poor communities/public schools, in 10 locations in the Philippines. We will screen and identify at least 300 malnourished children and provide supplementary school meals- a packed lunch with fortified rice,meat,vegetables and fruits,designed especially to meet their nutritional needs. #ProjectBaon ended its first year last March 2016. The 2nd year program will run for this school year 2016-2017, starting on June 2016.

Long-Term Impact

Poor nutrition and health among schoolchildren contributes 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 daily and consistent nutritious school meals to at least 300 malnourished children in 10 poor communities in the Philippines. We need your help as we try to assist these children so that they can reach their full potential for growth and learning.
