This year the Tsavo region has been hit by a particularly severe drought and crop failure, making it even more difficult for families to survive, making a school feeding programme vital over the next one to two years.
Many women and children are walking up to 10-15km each day in their search for safe drinking water resulting in lower school attendance.
We are working on providing the 100,000 people in this area with the long term solution of providing continuous access to safe drinking water alongside a short term solution of a school feeding program during this crisis.
Through our school feeding programs, each child receives a nutritious meal providing 60% of their daily food requirement every school day. In the long term education helps break the intergenerational cycle of poverty allowing a community to thrive.
With your support, 710 children between 5-18 years of age will benefit over the next one to two years to help families get through the effects of drought.
It only costs £40 to feed one more child a year through our School Feeding Program!
