The Meal a Day Nourishment Program was created to help give the children of Masese the opportunity to have breakfast and lunch. Many children rely on the meals they get at school to feed them entirely.
Prior to the establishment of the school, children ate once every three days. Since the school started in 2010, children have been receiving lunch 5 days a week. For most of them, these 5 meals are all they will eat all week.
The original lunch was a plate of posho (mashed potato-like texture made from cornmeal) and beans but in 2013, thanks to some generous donors, we have added vegetables and fish a few days a week to implement a broader range of nutrition. Also in 2013, we have added a small breakfast program so that the children won’t have to start their school days on an empty stomach. Today this is a very important part of our program. Now and in the days ahead.
Thank you so much for your support. It means the world to the school!
Any and all donation amounts are tax-deductible and go 100% toward funding the meal projects.
