A lack of a school is only one of the factors preventing village children from attending full time education.
The Trust is making funds available for a meal each day for pupils while they are at school. It is shocking to realise that, without this provision, village children will often miss school during the hungry (i.e. dry) season to scavenge for food (rats, mice, birds and fruits) in the bush.
Children help around the home and in the fields with domestic chores and farming. A meal eases acute pressure on families, and enables parents to release children from this type of work.
The cook is employed by the villagers themselves as their contribution to the programme. You can view a video about this programme here.
Help us cover the costs
The cost of feeding each child each school day is not much more than £1 each week. Monthly contributions toward the cost of this programme are particularly appreciated.
