Avoiding malnutrition and undernourishment will allow the children to go to school.


  • Alleviate the hunger problem
  • Provide sustainable meals to the children
  • Provide education and knowledge to the staff and children on agriculture.


The project will significantly improve the dietary diversity, nutrition, health and welfare of 700 children and youngsters at school.
