"We have 250 orphans from HIV in a school with 719 students; there are 10 teachers".
Lining up for Lunch
" Feeding children has enabled us to do very well in the academics because the children now come to school regularly. Absenteeism has been reduced almost to none".
A Good Meal
"You go to class and you teach children who are happy. They answer questions and they are alert."
"In 1999 our exam scores were 198 out of 300 schools in the district. We noticed children were asleep at their desks in the afternoon. And the ones who live nearby went home at lunch break and were back in ten minutes. They had only taken water at home."
"So the first year of the program we moved from 198 to 68 in the district. The second year we continued to move up and by 2003 we were #2! We have stayed in single digits ever since."
"So we are striving year in and year out to shine!"
