Challenge

Countless children in rural areas turn up for school on an empty stomach, which makes it hard to focus on lessons. The situation is more acute in rural public rural schools which are increasingly faced with the challenge of funding school meals due to limited government support, the rise in food cost and market failures. With your support IGLOW will provide one public rural girls school with 250 students (ages 7-14) with daily midday school meals throughout the 2020 academic school year.

Solution

The provision of school meals will ensure that the 250 girls remain in school and are able to learn and get critical calories and nutrition without having to worry about where the next meal will come from. These meals are a powerful incentive for parents to send their daughters to school - and to keep them there.

Long-Term Impact

Well-nourished students have more energy, are able to focus for longer periods of time, and are better able to learn. Through provision of school meals, the girls school attendance, retention and transition to high school will increase. We also believe that girls who are given the tools, information and education they need will become their own advocates and break down the barriers that keep them from realizing their full potential
