Give Breakfast to a Child in Honduras!

little girls in school honduras feeding program

The Honduran government, working with the World Food Programme, has a plan to increase school attendance at the primary level through in school feeding (ISF)! Not only does providing a daily meal motivate children to attend school, it also supplements the nutrient-deficiencies that the majority of children in these communities face.

Primary schools apply annually for the government allotment of food, to cover 60 days out an average 200 school days per year. Unfortuntely, children are only given food for 3 months of a 10-month school year, leaving a 7-month food deficit. ERDO is working with suppliers in Honduras to help children in this 7 month period. Food is prepared by school volunteers and handed out to kids.

ERDO's School Feeding Program is run through local schools where are sponsored children attend! Right now, we are given a nutrient rich breakfast drink to 1,440 children every morning! We are working with children from areas of high urban poverty living in the outskirts of the capital city. 70% of these children come from families where a single mom cares for her children on less than 5 dollars a day. Many of these families do not have running water.

Thank you for helping us feed children in need! Any amount will help a child learn and grow.
