The maize in the fields around the villages in Tanzania stands blitzed, scorched and blighted. The rains have failed, again, and food is scarce.
Students sometimes walk miles to school
Many of the students, have to walk miles just to get to school – on an empty stomach! Can you imagine? Their parents are farmers and times are tough – families are battling through to the next harvest two or three months from now. That is if the crops can survive that long. When they get home this evening, there will be little on the table – some porridge, if they are lucky. All this, and exams to pass.
A meal every day
Since kids4school have introduced their feeding centres, children will get something to eat today and everyday at school. Instead of sleeping, as they did in the past because they were so hungry and tired – today, they can learn. Yes, they still have exams to pass. At least the food in their stomachs should help them concentrate.
A NEW INITIATIVE – Not just the sponsored children are being fed
kids4school is rolling out a new initiative whereby all the children get a meal each day at school. This is being piloted initially at Kitelera Primary School. This mean that all 574 children will get a meal every day at school. This initiative will eventually be extended to ALL the primary Schools that we work in.
