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:
1. It encourages enrollment at the school, as parents know their kids will receive a good meal, something they can’t always provide them with.
2. It encourages attendance, the kids come and stay through to the afternoon lessons
3. It’s helped to change the culture within the village – parents now value education and see it as important
4. It enables us to employ locals as cooks and purchase supplies like potatoes and vegetables from the village.
