BENEFITING: GLOBAL HUMANITARIA CORP
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2015
CHILD HUNGER IS THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE FOR STUDENTS TO FAIL IN SCHOOL.
Empty stomachs not only affect a child's health, but also their ability to focus in the classroom and learn to their fullest potential.
In rural Peru, young children are often forced to leave school and enter the workforce just to put food in their belly.
But what if a teacher's voice didn't have to be drowned out by the sound of a growling stomach?
And what if they could achieve an education level high enough to get themselves, and their communities, out of the vicious cycle of poverty?
Global Humanitaria's School Nutrition Program keeps children IN school and OUT of the workforce.
Our school vegetable garden initiative not only has children learning how to grow their own food, but also provides them with healthy food to eat. We also provide other food items at school, which creates initiative for families to continue sending their children to school.
Help a child grow healthy, stay in school, and succeed beyond their wildest dreams!
- A $30 donation provides a child with meals at school for an ENTIRE YEAR.
- A $100 donation provides seeds for a school garden for an entire year, where children not only learn how to grow their own food and care for plants, but also eat the food grown in the garden.
THANK YOU SO MUCH CELEBRATING #GivingTuesday WITH US!
