Between 2012 – 2021, the programme provided school lunches to over 500 primary school students enrolled in our School Lunch Programme.
Our goal was to ensure that all of these students receive school lunches each day that school is in session, and all donations we received go first to funding this programme.
The annual budget was approximately €8,000 and includes: Cost of food and a stipend for co-ordinator who was responsible for withdrawing monthly money for food, ordering and purchasing food, security of food at school, liaising with the school principal and Kenyan NGO government sector, sending receipts to Ireland and supervising the serving of lunch on a weekly basis. The parents contributed to the food programme by paying for Jane, the cook and the firewood needed to prepare the food. Approximately €28.00 provides a student with school lunch for an entire school year.
Since 2021 we have been partnered with Food4Education to provide the school lunches as detailed on our home page.
All charity accounts are completely transparent and available to be viewed. The charity is registered with the Charity Regulatory Authority.
