Porridge Feeding Program


In the rural village of Kaynamira, Uganda the people are very poor. They typically earn around $1 a day and grow basic food like sweet potatoes and corn using hand tools. In the Kaynamira Primary School, where almost 800 grade 1-7 students attend, students are hungry.  With your help the Porridge Feeding project will provide corn (maize) based porridge 2 servings a day enabling them to focus and thrive!
