Child Nutrition Program
A simple and effective school feeding programme help keep children in school
and improve their learning while create markets for food farmers
How to get all children to go to school
Kids Non-Profit Organization recently started a nutrition program in collaboration with Matunkha, where $25 per year and child, feed the younger Malawian children. The children have one meal per day in some of the poorest schools, in the Rumphi District, in the northern part of Malawi.
children become better students
Kids with an empty stomachs become easily distracted and have problems concentrating on their schoolwork. They become better students when their bodies are well nourished and healthy. The incentive of getting a meal also reduces absenteeism. Most significantly, performance improves and drop-out rates decrease.
Supporting local farmers
KNPO's locally grown school feeding programme, insists on buying from local farmers the fruit, rice, beans, wheat, dairy and other ingredients used to prepare the food children are given in schools. It therefore reduces malnutrition while providing local farmers with the opportunity to sell their produce to participating schools.
simple, effective and environmentally sustainable
Poor nutrition is a big problem in Malawi, providing a meal at school is a simple but concrete way to give poor children a chance to learn and to find a job later in life. KNPO solutions are global, simple, effective, environmentally sustainable and non-disruptive.
