THE STORY: When Global Interfaith Partnership started its Umoja Project in Chulaimbo, Kenya, teachers and guardians there identified hunger as the primary problem affecting students’ attendance and academic performance. Since 2008 we’ve had a school lunch program feeding 3,200 students in 18 schools every year, ensuring that each child receives one nutritious meal a day. This is our 10th year and we have supported over 8,000 orphans and vulnerable children; hundreds of these kids from one of the poorest areas in Kenya have now graduated college and university! The #FoodForThought Challenge runs October 16 – November 28, 2017, during which we're asking groups to raise at least $1,000 each to contribute to our $30,000 goal. As a board member, I have committed to raise $3,000 to help reach our goal this year.
Follow the #FoodForThought conversation online and join the challenge! Please contact your friends! We'll provide whatever you need.
It only takes $25 to provide lunch for one of these wonderful kids for a whole year!
