The start of the third and final term of 2016 means exciting developments for our feeding programme. We are extending our lunch programme to Ngambenyi Primary to coincide with the completion of our 15-month, £100k redevelopment of this, our seventh, partner school. We will reach a further 125 children, taking the total number of children benefitting from the programme to more than 2,500. At a time when the dry season is beginning to bite and food is scarce, this lunch becomes an increasingly important lifeline and we are delighted to be able to extend this support to Ngambenyi.
From the start of this term we are also launching a breakfast club, initially only at Kiteghe Primary School. This will provide a daily mug of porridge to the most disadvantaged children at the school, who have been identified by teachers as coming from extremely impoverished backgrounds and for whom the lunch they currently receive may otherwise by their only meal of the day. The pilot programme at Kiteghe will benefit 32 pupils and it will cost approximately £1 to provide one pupil with a daily mug of porridge for one month.
