Summary

In an attempt to find longer-term solutions to South Africa's growing hunger pandemic we have set an ambitious goal. By World Food Day 2020 we are aiming to secure nutritional meals for 20,000 vulnerable young children every school day for the next 20 months. By taking up the #2020Challenge, you are not just giving a child the energy to learn, you are encouraging parents to send their child back to school and helping passionate women keep their learning centres running in rural communities

Challenge

With job losses on the rise, impoverished families are unable to afford monthly pre-school fees. Without this monthly income, and no government funding, 30,000 early learning facilities (serving 1 million young children) are at risk of closing. Ongoing nutritional support to these facilities - where children often receive their only meal of the day - acts as an incentive for families to return their children to a stimulating environment AND will help these early learning facilities remain open.

Solution

Your donation is not just giving a young child the energy to learn every school day, you are encouraging their parents/caregivers to send them back to a stimulating environment and supporting passionate Early Childhood Development practitioners (mostly marginalized women) to keep their learning Centres running so they can continue to nurture and stimulate young minds. DO MORE porridge (provided at cost) enables you to provide nutritional support for $1 | 1 CAD | 1 Euro (R20) /month per child.

Long-Term Impact

If we are to break the cycle of inter generational poverty we need to give young children a healthy and equitable start in life. Providing nutrition and an incentive for early learning for 20,000 of our countries most vulnerable young children will strengthen their development during the most fundamental years of human development (90% of brain growth occurs before the age of five); build their future health and economic prospects; and unlock the potential of future generations
