THE STORY:

A few people from our team just got back from our school in Zambia a couple short weeks ago.  They were primed for the poverty, the malaria, the challenges, but they were startled to find this ... 

Most of us enjoy three meals a day, less if you are dieting, more if you are prone to snacking. But basically as much as you want.

In rural southern Africa, this is the Hungry Period (January-March) when you are lucky to eat one meal a day. That one meal is Nshima, a thick paste cooked from Maize meal, with cooked down pumpkin leaves. Yum? Not really ... but it fills them up ... and they love it.

As subsistent farmers, this is something rural Africans have to endure every year. Their stored food is depleted as they wait for the rainy season to end and the March harvest to be ready. That means their children are coming to school hungry. Very hungry. It makes learning difficult. The school day has to be shortened during this period. The mango fruit season (the only breakfast option) has also just ended.  They have absolutely no energy to learn.

But we have an opportunity to help ...

We have women in the community willing to make the students Nshima at Dwankhozi Community School. Here's a picture of those women. This is a community of people who care deeply about their school and want to help.  So we have the built in labor to make the food, students eager to learn ... they just need us to help buy them some maize.

$10 feeds 60 students for one day.

$100 feeds the entire school for one day.

They only need to be fed for 6 weeks (30 school days.)

That's $3,000.

To keep 600 students learning.

Let's do this.

Every penny we raise here will go towards the purchase of food for Dwankhozi Basic School.
