Pinching Pennies

The feeding program at Kiang’ombe is central to the broader community development work we’re doing there.  We provide two nutrition packed meals a day to every child in the program and however hard it is to believe, if they don’t get it from us, they just don’t eat.  Monday mornings are really hectic because the well fed, happy, energetic children who left Friday afternoon show up early tired, hungry and crying for the first meal.  Since getting started in January, we have been able to serve nearly 10,000 meals and it is having a huge impact on these little lives.  It costs under $0.20 per meal and we need your help.   We keep it simple and focused – making every penny count.   Take a look.

    As the director and a teacher in Ameena Center, I have experienced a tremendous change in children.

    Actually food plays a great role in learning thus there has been an impact on enrollment demand this term.

    This has led to an increment in pupils numbers seeking for enrollment but we are unable to enroll more since we can’t carter for all their needs.

    Health wise the pupils are okey and the whole community are strongly behind the project in full support.

    Their smiles during lessons especially when we sing, it shows a clear indication that whatever we are imparting in them is doing them good.

    This makes me more encouraged and even motivated to work harder.
