Haiti UCI Public School Feeding ProgramDonate Now
A hungry child does not grow properly, may have difficulty learning, and will face many health challenges in the future. Nutrition is central to a child's survival and development.
Speroway is looking for support for 875 elementary students in Pignon, Haiti where most children might only get one meal a day.
We have engaged a number of food suppliers to help offset some of the costs for this important program but we are still need $20 000 to feed these students for a full school year.
Please consider a monthly gift, which helps ensure implementation of regular meals for these students.
We focus on school feeding to provide children and families with the essential nutrients they need. School feeding programs improve health and accessible education, which is instrumental in breaking generational cycles of poverty.
School feeding programs not only supply educational and health benefits, but contribute to gender equality, food security and poverty alleviation—all in a single intervention.
Speroway is also working with UCI University Agricultural Students and the local community to grow sustainable food and promote public health education. Improved seeds and better farming practices result in increased agricultural productivity, which improves overall nutrition in the community.
