Help Feed Hungry Children in Zimbabwe


Titre : Help Feed Hungry Children in Zimbabwe

Pays : Zimbabwe

Date : Date non précisée

For years, Zimbabwe has been devastated by political instability, economic crises, drought, high unemployment and the spread of HIV. Our project, lying far away from the political hub of the country, has been particularly hard hit. Our community schools presently have 400 day scholars, most do not have access to food and come to school hungry. Studies show that students are not able to learn when hungry and therefore can’t learn and become ambassadors to break the poverty cycle.

The project, overseen by The Stone Hills Wildlife Sanctuary for the past 12 years, supports local primary schools in rural Zimbabwe. All our day scholars receive a lunch funded by you, this is most of the time, the only meal they receive in a day. Providing lunch helps our students engage and focus on a much needed education to give a chance to access employment and break the poverty cycle. Our project not only funds the local school meals but also provides access to education for all.

Our objectives are simple : to continue to assist the local community in every way we can - particularly with the feeding of primary school children, and their education. This will help them concentrate and focus on their studies while they are at school and will also provide them with some of the nutrients that they are lacking.
