Feeding programs for the orphans
The UN estimates that almost 50% of people in Zambia can’t meet their daily calorie
requirements and, with survival often taking precedence over education, 45% of Zambia’s primary school age children drop out of school early, as most families in Zambia live below the poverty line.
It is for this reason why Immara hope foundation has designed a feeding program to
reduce hunger and improve nutrition among school going orphans. This school feeding
scheme initiative is a globally recognized social protection tool that helps not only to
keep children in the system; but to alleviate child hunger, ensure the wellbeing of all
pupils, and relieve the financial burden on their households.
