Knowledge, Learning, Community
To the headline I say: good. Note this: "School feeding programmes are cost-effective - a child can be fed for a year for US$34 - and the programmes can double enrolments within a year. Offering take-home rations to girls is an incentive for parents to allow girls to attend school." Also: "On empty stomachs, children are easily distracted and cannot concentrate properly. Hunger impedes a child's ability to learn and achieve." I've said it before and I'll say it again and again and again until we somehow regain our moral stance in society: feed the children.
