All of the children at our Nursery School are provided with a breakfast. We also provide a cooked meal at lunchtime to all of the children that we are supporting at Primary School and those children at Nursery School who are especially needy.
Pupils at Child of Hope’s school come from only the poorest families in the slum – and most of those children eat just once a day; sometimes they go a whole day with nothing to eat.
Our meal is the same every day... posho and beans. Posho is the traditional Ugandan dish of maize flour cooked with water to a porridge-like consistency. We serve the posho with beans cooked with some cabbage and onions. With more funds, we will be able to vary the children’s diet and even add meat on occasions, so donations will help us improve nutrition. This in turn will help the kids grow properly and fight off the many illnesses and infections they face in the slum.
