On March 10 2011, ADDHU launched a school feeding program in the Soweto slums in Nairobi. This program will benefit around 700 children from several schools located in the slums, who will receive at least one meal per day, while they are in school, during one year. The meals are usually served at lunchtime, although some children also receive some snacks in the morning, as they arrive to school on an empty stomach.

The school feeding program is going to alleviate the suffering and the hunger of the children, reducing food insecurity, keeping them in school and improving their academic performance.

There are many orphan and vulnerable children in the Soweto slums, and very few basic infrastructures and services such as schools or hospitals. One of the major challenges the population of Soweto faces is hunger and food insecurity. Most of the children living in the slum don’t get one meal per day and there are several cases of undernourishment and malnutrition. Many children drop out of school and the ones who don’t have serious concentration and learning difficulties due to the lack of nutrients, which affects their school performance.
