leaving the darkness

Schools that have re-opened in Liberia after eight months of being closed due to the #Ebola epidemic. This school re-opened in Bomi County in March and resumed its school meals program in April. More than 100,000 children across the country have received these meals so far.:

I have had the privilege of visiting dozens of schools in developing cointries where Stop Hunger Now meals are being used in school feeding programs. The teachers, principals and headmasters have all told me the same thing.

The children come to school because they know they will get a hot meal. It will be the only food for the day for over 90 percent of the kids eating the meals.

Then the school leaders say,”Without the Stop Hunger Now meals the children will not come to school. If they do not come to school they will not get an education. If they are not educated there is no hope, there is no future for our nation.”

School Feeding Programs provide more than just food for hungry and malnourished kids. The meals provide hope. They provide a path out of darkness into the light.
