Monthly Update: Sept, 2019

Hi <<First Name>>, thanks for belonging to our wonderful community of supporters!

Monthly Highlight
Now serving fresh fruit!

Our School Breakfasts Project serves porridge to students at Luchelele Secondary School two days per week. Now, we're serving fresh fruit too! This well usually be bananas or mangoes, but passion fruit and pineapples also abound in Mwanza.

Many students have to walk for over an hour to school each day, work hard, and then walk back home, and some do it on just 1 meal per day. This means that more than 1 in 3 children in Tanzania have their growth affected by poor nutrition (USAID, 2018), and many more feel the effects of hunger while they are trying to focus in class.

Offering breakfast for free helps students grow healthier, feel better physically, feel more secure emotionally, and succeed in their studies. It costs about 17 cents to buy a student one breakfast with fruit, or $13 to buy that student two breakfasts per week for the entire school year.
