Stomach rumbling and mind wandering…
It’s tough to focus on learning when you are hungry and low on energy.
Imagine how difficult it would be to a 7-year old…
A lot of children from less fortunate families in Pakistan cannot manage to go to school…
…and those who find a free of cost school, their parents cannot afford healthy meals for them.
Most of the kids in such schools either do not have breakfast or eat stale roti and tea in the morning.
Without good food, the body does not have the fuel…
How can we expect these children to be as successful as the children who are healthy and have the luxury to focus and learn better?
How sad is it that these kids work hard but cannot compete with wealthier children because their parents cannot afford food?
A nourishing school lunch makes all the difference…
…In a child’s ability to learn and engage in their education. Especially the kids who do not get any healthy meals at home at all!
…as in most cases, the schools cannot afford to provide healthy meals to hundreds of students 6 days a week.
These not-for-profit schools stretch every penny of their limited budget to provide the best possible education for their students…
But, food gets neglected.
This scenario is all too common as schools struggle with the ongoing challenge of funding…
Help Us Provide Warm, Fresh, Healthy Lunches To More Than 170 Children. Every Day.
Every child’s hunger should be met with a warm meal at school,
So they can focus on nourishing their minds instead of empty stomachs.
As a means to help,
EPB has teamed up with Street To School – a program dedicated to educating underprivileged children who live on the streets in Karachi –
To provide healthy and nourishing lunches to their students.
They have two campuses located in these areas of Karachi: Gharibabad and Orangi Town.
If you would like to help us prioritize these children’s health,
And provide nourishing meals for the students at Street To School,
You may choose to donate here.
The cost of one meal for a student is only $1!
Every penny you donate will enable these campuses to provide their students with nutritious meals every day.
