“A daily school meal provides a strong incentive to send children to school and keep them there”, says World Food Programme. “They allow children to focus on their studies rather than their stomachs and boost their education by increasing school enrollment and attendance, decreasing drop-out rates, and improving cognitive abilities.”

With Common Ground Christmas Campaign, we chose to focus on school lunch for all 60 children at Akerate school. We also plan to employ one local Akerate villager, starting a sustainable circle, giving back to the community.
