Arise Africa has an ongoing feeding program where we work to feed as many children as possible in community schools. We try to feed ALL children in a school that we work with. We work with school directors and parents who volunteer to cook the food for the children. With the donation of just one dollar we can provide fourteen nutritious hot meals for a child. That is around seven cents for a meal!
We supply and feed the school children with enshima, which is a maize based bread product. Some of the children rely on the school's provision as their only source of food for the day. Through our child feeding program we are helping fight hunger in a controlled atmosphere. Our goal is to keep children fed, so they are able to concentrate while at school and gain a better education, thus hopefully improving their chances at having a better future. With good nutrition the child is less likely to become ill as well.
Our goal is to replicate this program at other schools in Lusaka, and add a protein source to the meals provided for the children. Please consider giving to this program in order to provide sustenance and hope to the children of Lusaka.
