Day 18. Your 20p/day feed a child!

The Santa Luísa de Marillac School Meals programme was launched in 2013 with excellent results of school attendance rates and results.

In 2014, it is going forward with a full year programme! With an annual cost of £41’312, it relieves local poverty in Manjangue and provides education for extremely underprivileged children. For a monthly cost of £5/child, the school population of 802 students in Santa Luísa de Marillax School has a daily breakfast and a hot nutritious lunch, often their only full meal during the day.

ALG School Meals improve school attendance through the incentive of the free meal and increases school results by reducing hunger during classes. It also promotes gender equality, preventing girls from missing school to cook at home. Meals are served at Santa Luísa de Marillac School where UPG Portugal already sponsors 123 extremely underprivileged children under Sister Lídia’s supervision.Support School Meals initiative in Santa Luísa de Marillac – give a Great Help to Mozambique!
