Every day, we feed over 1,000 children in a slum school and a remote village of Kenya. Thanks to our Finland office, we have maintained this program to serve Mikindani Nursery, Jimba Primary and Living Word Primary Schools, so that 1,022 students not only receive important nutrition, but have the opportunity to attend school, play with friends and remain healthy.
“The children of Star of Hope Kenya send their deepest gratitude to Feeding the Nation (FTN) Finland and all well-wishers for supporting a balanced diet for their healthy growth and development,” a recent report from Star of Hope Kenya said. “You have continued to make it possible for these children to actively participate in school activities after taking the 10 o’clock porridge and the 12 noon lunch. This has made their afternoon nap a comfortable one and the afternoon lessons lively. Because of you, our children have a healthy smile.”
In addition to the food, we also gave four goats to help grow their sustainable farm program—a program that is growing on its own thanks to the birth of nine piglets! The farm now has eight goats, four cattle, eight pigs and nine piglets.
“The children and staff at Star of Hope Kenya would like to thank FTN Finland for your generous contribution towards our sustainability projects,” the report continued. “Now they are multiplying at our farm in Mikindani which means our children will benefit even more from this project.
“A BIG THANK YOU to FTN Finland for your awesome support throughout the years. You have made it possible to keep a needy child healthy and active during their time in school. Thank you for making a difference in our community.”
Thank you to all who joined with us to make this feeding program and donation of farm animals possible. When we work together, we can bless even more children with healthy smiles. Please donate today.
