Hungry students cannot learn. Uneducated adults cannot feed themselves. We recognize that an African child is born to defy all odds and should, therefore, be afforded the opportunity to learn. We aim to tackle low school enrollment and attendance, high dropout rates and low academic achievement in Africa through the implementation of sustainable feeding programs. We focus on Sustainable feeding initiatives that empower the African child to lift themselves out of poverty through education thus providing a spoor that equips them with the necessary machinery to elevate themselves.
What is one of the most prominent obstacles hindering the child’s learning process? Hunger. We call for a stride from exploitation to education, from poverty to shared prosperity. Sustainable School feeding programs through the establishment of school gardens can help to get children into school and help keep them there, increase enrollment and reduce truancy. The program benefits from increased links to local agriculture.
We strive to promote a new approach to philanthropy. We hope to set new benchmarks for impact and change the way the world thinks about charitable giving. We are partnering with some of the most passionate and driven philanthropists on the globe to promote a new approach of empowering the African child through education. Ending hunger in Schools is a goal that is literally within our grasp.
Ending child hunger in schools might take 10 years, it might take 15 years. But when it does happen, it will 100 percent be because of heroes like you, that had a concern for other people in need — a concern to defend a moral cause, knowing there is a personal risk, done without expectation of reward.
