How the project is making a difference in the lives of the children
This project is meant to cushion the children of Makonjemare School from the adverse effects of Covid 19. For the last 4 years, these children from poor families relied on school feeding for survival but due to Covid, all learning institutions in Kenya were closed since March 16, 2020. A lot of children and their families have starved due to lack of food. This project has put a smile on their faces
Children can get food
