Our lunch program runs 6 days a week and feeds the children enrolled in our school a healthy diet.
This program is a great initiative for a number of reasons:
- It encourages enrollment at the school, as parents know their kids will receive a good meal, something they can’t always provide them with.
- It encourages attendance, the kids come and stay through to the afternoon lessons
- It’s helped to change the culture within the village – parents now value education and see it as important
- It enables us to employ locals as cooks and purchase supplies like potatoes and vegetables from the village.
