The Rotary Club of Braids is raising funds to provide 6,000 BREAKFASTS A WEEK FOR CHILDREN IN TANZANIA.
The Rotary Club of Braids is raising funds to provide 6,000 BREAKFASTS A WEEK FOR CHILDREN IN TANZANIA. We are participating in a crowdfunding appeal run by GlobalGiving. The appeal will run from the 9th to the 27th of September 2019.
This project follows on from a very successful pilot project - so we know that it works. The project involves training teachers and pupils to grow crops in the (currently uncultivated) land around 4 schools on the island of Ukerewe in Tanzania. Once the crops are harvested, they are used to provide breakfasts to the pupils. Any surplus crops will be sold to provide funds for the schools to purchase equipment. We plan to implement this in 4 schools - with teachers from the pilot schools providing the training.
The nutritional benefits to the children are obvious, as are the educational benefits - through increased attendance and better levels of concentration.
