Nutritious meals are necessary for the health and growth of our students both mentally and physically. The program enables our students to focus and excel in their schoolwork without being distracted by hunger.
The typical school system is a half-day program (morning or afternoon session) in which the children learn basic education (Math, Khmer language, Science & Social Studies).
The other part of the day, the children have family obligations and help parents work. Most of these children do not finish schools and typically do not go beyond a 3rd grade education.
By implementing a lunch program, we encourage the kids to stay in school and learn to become more self-sufficient.
