"Building Educational Opportunities in Sierra Leone"

School Lunches

As the local Sierra Leonean saying goes “an empty bag cannot stand”, a hungry child cannot concentrate and learn. Thanks to the SOS UK Branch coordinated by very hard working volunteers (Ciara MacFarland, Christine Williams, Dionne Widgery, Adam Ashworth, Craig Ellison, Heather McCullagh, Elliott Lewis, Emma Lewis and Peter Blanchard) who raised funds to kick start the Kainde School Lunch Program, which was stopped for couple years due to lack of funding. Special thanks to all who supported and sponsored our volunteers. We are pleased to announce that with your support the Kainde School Lunch Program has been revived and the students are guaranteed a meal a day which they might not get if they stay home. We now cook for 675 students with support from 3 volunteer cooks.
