Feed hungry children in Tanzania for $0.47 per meal.
In December 2022, I visited the Losirwa Primary School near the village of Mto wa Mbu in northern Tanzania.
This school, founded in 2008, serves 850 children from surrounding Massai villages. Without it, these children would receive little (if any) education. Although the school meets for 8 hours a day and teaches the 7 essential subjects (including both Swahili and English), it does not provide any food for the children.
Mary, the Head of School (shown in black in the photo below), said that their greatest need - by far - was to feed the children.
In February 2023, I will be leading a group back to Tanzania and back to this school. Our goal is to feed the children by purchasing local ingredients and delivering them to Losiwra. To feed 850 kids one meal, we will purchase at markets in Arusha 100 kg maize, 40 kg beans, 100 kgs rice, cooking oil, and salt. We will personally deliver it to the school where the ingredients will be used to prepare a traditional Massai meal in the kitchen shown below:
The budget for one meal (including transportation and labor costs) is $400, or $0.47 per child.
Every bit of your donation will be used to purchase and deliver food for the kids.
Let's feed some hungry children!
