Ministry Focus: The School Feeding Project in Honduras has been operating for that past few years, feeding vulnerable children on the outskirts of Tegucigalpa Honduras, a nutritional breakfast drink each morning (Monday-Friday) before school starts. The porridge-like beverage provides critical nutritional support for children to help ensure they get the important vitamins and minerals that they need for healthy development. The daily serving before school in the morning helps children stay alert during class and improves learning comprehension.
In 2020, there are an anticipated 735 children who will benefit from the project across 6 different school locations, in addition to supporting other children in the community. To complement the child feeding, this project also supports community-based workshops highlighting the importance of nutrition as well as hygiene activities at a household level.
Ministry Goal: Our gross budget for 2020, including program administration and support, is currently $19,250 (Canadian funds).
Cost: $30 per child, per school year. Note: a school year in Honduras is 9 months in duration.
