School Meals for African Children

Item # 32491

Education offers the best hope for Africa's future, yet a troubling number of children in rural Africa drop out of school long before they have gained the skills to improve their lot in life. One of the most common reasons is hunger. Children drop out in order to take odd jobs or toil in the family's subsistence agriculture livelihood. Providing a free meal at school removes one barrier to staying in school, keeping enrollment higher and raising hopes for the future.

This Gift That Gives More™ will provide 30 school meals for a class in an African school, through The Charities Advisory Trust.


Report from the Field

Between July 2009 and June 2010, this Gift That Gives More™ provided meals for more than 3,500 children in sub-Saharan Africa.
