The first official program, HSH Feeding program began running in January 2016. The project began as we were following the Pre-Primary program of Makongeni school.
We heard complaints from the teacher that the children do not have the energy to focus during lessons and a lot of children were away from school due to stomach problems. After a bit of research, we found out that it was not the issue of illness, but rather the issue of hunger.
Some of the kindergarten students walk a long journey from home and often children do not eat breakfast. For a child as young as three years old, the walking distance from home to school is rough without breakfast. We created simple solution for the problem: We started to offer breakfast porridge for the kindergarten pupils. HSH Feeding Program is running every school day and so far, we have cooked more than 110 000 cups of porridge. (2018)
