Support of nutritional porridge programme

Most of the already supported children under this project are attending the Early Childhood Development (ECD) classes, these children have been able to attend classes through your contribution that has been paid in fees. Through feedback from the ECD teachers, it was found out that even though the orphans had been provided with fees and books still most of them were not concentrating in classes due to hunger. We found out that most of this orphans  were not taking meals in morning when coming to school and because the school did not offer porridge, the orphans had to wait till noon to have lunch with the rest of the children. This not only reduced their concentration in schools but also hindered their development physically and psychologically.

We have initiated a programme in 2 schools that we had previously provided uniforms to orphans i.e Nyangorora and Kiabiraa. Through discussions with parents and teachers of the schools we decided to be offering nutritional porridge flour to the school every month to cater for the whole ECD children and at the same time reaching the orphans. The school will be preparing porridge for the ECD children. This initiative will increase enrollment and decrease dropout of orphans in the school while also improving the nutritional status of the children.

Currently the two schools are opening after going for a the school holiday and we expect to start providing the flour (50 Kg bag of Nutritional porridge flour) to the two schools each every month, as we continue reaching other orphans in other schools we will be providing the flour to them too.
