This project aims to provide a nutritious meal daily for 130 children from the rural impoverished communities along the Greater Kruger national park. These children aged from 6 months to 13 years come daily to the Nourish eco village for a warm meal. For many children this forms one of their main meals in the day. This feeding scheme project has the goal of feeding 130 children a warm meal daily; ensuring health, and development in children through nutrition. We need $44 per child monthly.
Poverty has many impacts and repercussions, and one of these is malnutrition and hunger. Many children coming to the Nourish Eco village daily come from impoverished families, and walk to our center after school in the hopes of a warm healthy meal. Many children lived with an unemployed parent, or even with a granny, and the household income is low. This impacts children getting enough healthy food on a daily basis to allow them to grow healthily and develop, and think and learn.
By supporting our Nourish Feeding scheme program, you are committing to helping us to provide food for these vulnerable children on a daily basis. For only $ 44 a month you can provide a daily meal. Children have a right to not be hungry, and a right to food. The Sustainable Development goals include end hunger. THIS is our goal! You also pay for firewood to cook, electricity for the fridge, fuel to buy groceries, and an income for a granny to cook. These are all key to this holistic goal.
The long term impact is that we have the ability to commit to these children long term. They will know the Nourish eco village is a safe place to come for their daily meal. They get stability and health. Better nutrition mean better concentration in school, and better educational development. It also means better health and well-being, more energy, and a better quality of life. The holistic project also creates additional income to an old man selling firewood, and the grannies who cook.
