Bring Back Dinner
We really need your help!
One of the really unique things about Fresh and Green Academy, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is it's meal program. For the past seven years the children of the academy have received three meals a day, as well as a first rate education. If it were not for the school all the 182 children would be on the streets begging for their next meal instead of learning and growing.
Seven years ago the children were only eating lunch and dinner and while this was more than they had for the first four years of their life, they were still going to bed hungry.
We added the third meal when a four year old student was over heard telling her friend "I couldn't wait to get to school in the morning, because I was so hungry last night and I could not ask my mom for food because we have no money". That broke my heart so we decided to do what ever it took to add dinner. Thanks to proper nutrition, quality education and the love the kids receive at the academy the children are thriving.
However, receiving the nutrition they have grown to depend on, and what should be a right for every child, is in jeopardy!
Due to rising food prices in Ethiopia, our monthly school expenses have increased significantly and we have had to cut out the last meal of the day and we run the risk of loosing more without adequate funding.
