WHY WE ARE DOING THIS
School attendance in rural areas is considerably lower than their urban counterparts. Although a majority of the students suffer from malnutrition, most schools simply cannot afford to fund a feeding program. Government funded feeding programs currently exist in some schools, but it can take years to receive approval for a program. Due to budget constraints, it is highly unlikely that aid will be available to all schools to address this problem. After speaking with the teachers and other school officials that serve in these rural poverty-stricken communities, the lack of a feeding program was identified as the largest reason why parents don’t send their school-age kids to school.
This is where we have the incredible opportunity to step in and help.
