Hunger is a daily reality for many children in Jamaica, especially in rural parts of the island. But we can change this. Help us to provide food for children in desparate need at Salters Hill All Age school in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
The Effects of Hunger
Hunger is a huge barrier to the physical and psychological development of a child, affecting focus and concentration and making it difficult to learn. Hunger stunts approximately 171 million children in developing countries by age 5. Stunting can affect a child’s brain development and performance in school. As a result, stunted children are 19% less likely to be able to read by age eight.
Ending Cycles of Poverty
We believe that one of the most effective ways to fight poverty is to remove the barriers that perpetuate it from one generation to the next. The most significant driving force of poverty worldwide is lack of education. Low attendance rates and high dropout rates are both affected by nutrition. We aim to remove barriers like hunger, so that children can reach their full potential and can overcome one major obstacle to completing their education.
How You Can Help
Together we can help to provide breakfast and lunch for children in school. Good nutrition is essential for good learning.
