Meal Program Keeps Girls in School

By Frankline | Partner in Africa

The cost of a meal has increased significantly due to the high inflation worldwide.  This has resulted in many families missing some meals, leading to malnutrition and most kids do not attend school because they have to look for food first to enable them to learn well.  This situation is greatly affecting education. 

In our small way to mitigate this situation so that the girls can stay in school is through our school meal program that has really gained the backing of our community garden and rice farming. Through these projects that American Foundation for Children with AIDS supports, we are able to keep the girls in school. It is ensuring that the children get the nourishment they need to learn and grow as children.

There is a sense in which the girl child and beneficiary families has benefitted with our school meal program such as 

1. Providing nutrition to kids.

2. Boost the income of poor and vulnerable households knowing that a meal is taken care of at the school.

3. Improving the learning outcome of the child.

4. Promotes gender equality by keeping girls in school longer, thus delaying pregnancy and early marriages.

5. Promoted the dignity of the girl child.

We've realized that providing school feeding programs is an effective way to work towards sustainable social change and significantly increases the enrollment of girls.  We could not have done this without the support of generous donors of AFCAID  and I am pleased to report that your investment is really giving hope and significant change to many here in Miwani. Thank you for being part of this project.

Everyone here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, and our partners in Africa, thank you for your continued support of this important project.  If you would like to learn even more about this project and others, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
