A hungry child is in survival mode and cannot succeed in school. We believe it is essential to the academic success of our sponsored children to be well-nourished. In 2012, due to a generous grant from the eBay Foundation, we were able to initiate a “Hot-Plate” program, where we provide a hot, well-balanced meal to children at least twice a week. These meals may be the only opportunity during the week that the children get to eat a hearty meal, with meat!
This program is so important to our children. We are looking for ways and opportunities to expand services and to continue this program for years to come.
