TSAVO PROJECT, KENYA
Emergency School Feeding and Classroom Building
It only costs £40 to feed one more child a year through our School Feeding Program!
In the last few years the Tsavo region has been hit by particularly severe droughts and crop failure, making it even more difficult for families to survive, making a school feeding programme vital over the next two to three years.
Many women and children are walking up to 10-15km each day in their search for safe drinking water resulting in lower school attendance.
We are working on ensuring the 100,000 people living in this region have the long term solution of continuous access to safe drinking water. Till then, this particular community needs a short term solution of a school feeding program during the crisis.
Through our school feeding programs, each child receives a nutritious meal providing 60% of their daily food requirement every school day. In the long term education helps break the intergenerational cycle of poverty allowing a community to thrive.
In 2014 Global Angels has already provided funding for school meals for one year at the Sasyeni Primary School, Tsavo. There are 710 children between 5-18 years of age who will benefit from the meals, to help families get through the effects of drought. We are currently raising funds for the programme in 2018.
With the Tsavo school feeding project, providing easy access to safe drinking water at school buildings is also of crucial importance, so education and water projects go hand in hand. Therefore we are also funding a rainwater harvesting system, and the school is having new guttering and water storage tanks installed.
Some classrooms had as many as 90 children in each class, so we are also building new classrooms as funds come in.
It only costs £40 to feed one more child a year through our Tsavo School Feeding Program. Give a Child a Future today!
