Through Pounds for Porridge we feed the poorest girls at school, providing essential nutrition and supporting their education.
Following contact with Angaza secondary School in Lindi we have identified a real need for help with food for the poorest students.
Two teachers who worked with us in 2107 are now providing a meal for students half way through the school day. It is nutritious and encouraging them to attend school as well as concentrating in class.
4000 Tanzanian shillings or £1.27 can feed one student for 5 days a week!
We have started with 10 girls but would love to expand the programme.
We are concentrating on girls, as they are the most likely to drop out of school if a family cannot pay for school equipment and food. An educated girl will be an educated mother. This influence will continue to multiply through generations.
