We managed to get hold of a maize based cereal for the children, it has the RDA of vitamins and minerals that a child needs, it also has immunity boosting stuff for those children who are HIV+ or who have AIDS. We are now buying enough to feed up to 70 children a day.
What I would like to see is for ALL 389 children in the school fed on a daily basis. But of course that takes money! Money that at the moment we do not have. Please pray for this for us. The children learn so much better when they are full.
This post could potentially be a very long one!!! I have so much to share with you about this school. There are 389 children attending this school, they are between the ages of 5 and 12. The school has 15 teachers. Today there were 8 teachers for 389 children! And the vice principle told me that this was a good day! Some days she has as few as 5 teachers for all these children.
There are no sports, art, science or music supplies. The windows are broken and the roof has holes. The grounds are dusty and messy. The class rooms need painting and they need new desks. The teachers need help and encouragement.
