School feeding program

The primary school is the children’s central institution of social life. The purpose of School Feeding Program (S.F.P) is to provide one meal a day of a balanced diet to all the children attending school for 9 schools with a population of 4,250 pupils.  S.F.P has been found necessary due to poverty levels in the community where the children don’t have enough to eat at home let alone carry some food to eat at school during lunch time. Watoto Wenye Nguvu I.O.C provides food supplies, salaries for the 13 cooks, and supply of energy saving stoves. The community contribution is the provision of water, firewood cooking and storage facilities.

Every day at lunch, the children line up to receive a bowl of beans and maize sometimes supplemented with vegetables.  This often is the only meal they will eat for the day. School feeding program gives an opportunity to provide a nutritious meal to the children and has boosted their health by reducing the number of children suffering from malnutrition. Data shows that, schools where feeding program is in place, children retention and school attendance reaches almost 100%. There has been significant improvement in academic performance in those schools under S.F.P.
