Uganda Nourishing Bellies and Brains

2750 people impacted

Many school kids in Eastern Uganda frequently do not eat breakfast or lunch.  This project will provide solar cookers to prepare student lunches, and desks and books that are in dire need.  With food in their bellies, kids will be better able to concentrate and learn.

The issues:

Crowded classrooms, 5 students per desk, and worn out textbooks are a common theme among 3 schools in Eastern Uganga (Nawire, Muenge & Bukwekwe), as is cooking lunch for thousands of children using firewood.

The Plan:

Purchase 4000 textbooks, XX desks for students and 100 solar cookers (and pots) for the 3 schools.
