Providing Meals to School Children

Many of the children lucky enough to go to school need to be provided with a meal at school. Through the government porridge is served as the one meal per day at the school. Narozari Rural School is in the early stages of developing a garden at the school to supplement not only the children's porridge meal but supplement the diet for teachers and boarding students.

  • The cost for a child to have the one meal per day at the school is US$7.00 per term, of which there are 3 per academic terms per year. (US$21.00 to provide a meal daily for a child for one year at school). At present at Narozari there are 380 children receiving this meal. Funding is needed for this program to continue.
