Did you know that it only costs EUR 23.4 / USD 27 / KSH 2,700 to give one child daily school meals at Bignet Education Centre during the entire 2020 school year?
✎ The "Bignet Education Centre" in Dagoretti, Kenya is a community based school offering quality education to kind, smart, motivated and creative children... who happen to grow up in a lower income area. There are 300 students aged between 2 and 16 years old.
❀ The Feeding Programme for this school provides students hot meals and tea at school:
♥ Daily school meals are important for many reasons. The school meals
➝ are a strong incentive to send children to school and keep them there. School enrollment and attendance goes up, while drop-out rates go down
➝ increase children's cognitive abilities, allowing them to better focus on their education
➝ promote good health, nutrition, hygiene and sanitation practices at an early stage in life
✄ The feeding programme strives to achieve the UN's Zero Hunger Challenge and the Sustainable Development Goals.
♥ Funding Goal
One daily meal for one child : EUR 0,13
One daily meal for all 300 students: EUR 39
A week's worth of meals for all students: EUR 195
To fund meals for all students during the 180 school days:
EUR 0,13 * 180 school days * 300 children = EUR 7,020
When we add the transaction fees from Go Fund Me to that
EUR 7,020 * 6.5% = EUR 7,486
When we add the loss from currency conversion from the first pay out from Go Fund Me to Bignet
EUR 7,486 + EUR 165 = EUR 7,651
➩ Total funding goal: EUR 7,651 / USD 8,299 / KSH 839,732 (Using XE Currency Converter on 21 February 2020)
♥ 2019 fundraiser = EUR 8,306
Thanks to YOUR support we raised EUR 8,306 in 2019, which was all used on the daily school meals.
We decided to add the 2020 fundraiser to the 2019 fundraiser, to allow more transparency. You can see previous donations, read previous updates, and see the total funding which has come in.
EUR 8,306 in 2019 + EUR 7,486 in 2020 leads us to a total target of EUR 15,792.
All money goes directly to the school meals. No money is used for admin, transport or transaction fees.
