Through our Feed to Educate program, we strive to ensure children from poor families can continue to go to school by providing them with continuous food assistance.Donate
We identify schools that have a problem with student absenteeism due to poverty and shortlist beneficiaries from those schools that will receive food assistance through our Feed To Educate program.
Then we provide monthly raw food assistance to the families through funds collected from the public and corporate sector. The foods are meant to offset any expenses needed by the family to send their children to school.
We regularly check with the school to track the academic progress of the children we help and ensure that they do not miss school without any valid reason. We believe education is the only way to get a child out of the poverty cycle.
Parents are also more willing to be involved with the student's progress in the classroom
We support schools that have a problem with student absenteeism due to poverty. Children in poverty are usually expected to quit school in order to provide the family with supplemental income. Our Feed To Educate program ensures that children can continue going to school by providing their family with enough raw food supply.
“Poverty must not be used as an excuse to continue child labour. It perpetuates poverty. If children are deprived of education, they remain poor.”
