What could be more enjoyable than watching a child’s eyes glitter and light up with unexpected joy when they get hot and nutritious mid-day meals every school day? These meals not only provide the required nutrition for their growing years but also act as an incentive for them to stay enrolled in school which in turn decreases absenteeism and the dropout rate. This encourages children to pursue their education and gives them a better chance to work towards their dreams.
Nourishing and educating children can have multifold impact!
- 14% reduction on child marriage
- Contribute to overall economic growth
- Increase in empowerment
- Increase in knowledge equals reversed climate change
- An educated tomorrow will encourage education of their next generation
