For a number of years, Fisherman’s Rest together with it’s partners, has been providing food to schools. Hungry children think about survival, not about going to school. Instead, in order to survive, they have to work in the fields or on the streets. Even if they do make it into the classroom, hunger will affect their ability to learn.
Through provision, support and training, Fisherman’s Rest administrates the Good Food (Chakudya Chabwino) project, feeding over 7000 school children every day during term-time. Fisherman's provides the porridge and parents cook it. Through providing local schools one good meal a day, hungry, poor children have full bellies, giving them the energy and opportunity to learn and flourish, creating better prospects for their future.
