rachel commented on Food for Education

Having been born and raised in Kenya, I have seen firsthand the difficulties faced by the children raised in slum areas. With passing time and increased effects of climate change, the situation has become worse and the numbers of affected children has increased immensely. This project model is very practical and impactful more so because it is focused on every aspect of the society as a whole from the children, parents,small scale farmers in the region and the community at large. This project allows for children to benefit from a balanced nutritious meal something they do not get at home as well as being motivated to go to school which has not been the case despite the free education offered by the government. I like the fact that this does not end with a satisfying meal but that nutritional classes are being offered so as to ensure that the cycle continues and more individuals benefit from the program.
Thumbs up Wawira for the great job you are doing and all the best!!!!!
