95% of Afghans experience some kind of food insecurity, and 22.8 million people are at risk of starvation. This number includes the more than 3.5 million kids who are in dire need of nutritional support.
Yet they have a solution: food.
Afghan youngsters can now receive the nourishment they require for a healthy upbringing with the help of regular school lunches. With a full stomach, students can concentrate on getting the education they need to open the door to a better future.

'Do not show lethargy or negligence in giving alms and charity until your last breath.'
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Sahih Bukhari
Here is just one of the more than 3.5 million Afghan toddlers who require nutritional support.
Meet Faisal, a 10-year-old boy from Kabul.
Like many people in Afghanistan, Faisal's father struggles to find job and takes any available opportunities to work as a porter. However, the family struggles to make ends meet and cannot even manage to treat Faisal's ill mother due to the lack of funds.
Food is his answer.
Faisal is able to receive education and grow up healthily thanks to regular, well-balanced school lunches. But more than that, it also lessens the family's financial burden, enabling his mother to buy medicine and his siblings to consume more.Donate Now
