Provide a school community with a nutritious school lunch program for one month that will increase student attendance and participation in class, decrease malnutrition, and improve child health.


The Olosiyoi community is in great need of support for a lunch program. Free The Children recently constructed a school in the community, as a lack of infrastructure meant that 80% of school-aged children were not attending primary school.

Additionally 90% of the population in Olosiyoi live in extreme poverty, without access to proper nutrition or clean water. This project will enable students to study and improve their health through the provision of a lunch program at the school.


School lunch programs are good for increasing student concentration and encouraging student attendance and participation in class. This project will benefit 250 students.

Many students had to miss at least a half day of class in order to eat. Another issue that arose was that when students missed a meal, they could not concentrate on school due to hunger. Now, because of your support, the students enjoy nutritious food at school. After the nutrition program was im...
