International School Meals Day

Nascent Solutions staff and partner schools in Cameroon joined the international community in celebrating International School Meals Day on March 3rd 2016. This is a critical issue with global implications and potential repurcussions. One that it is important to highlight and address considering the grim reality of being a child scholar in an impoverished region.

Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest prevalence of hunger globally. With one in four people malnourished or undernourished and 23 million children attending class hungry regularly.
NSI’ ALIGN is specifically geared at addressing this problem, with the objective of dramatically improving school attendance, reducing hunger in students and increasing the attentiveness and productivity of school children in Bui Division.

While we pause to celebrate the gains we have made over the years. We also acknowledge the challenge ahead and invite our guests to join us in our fight against childhood and school hunger, so we can secure a brighter future for children in marginalized communities.
