School Feeding Programs
Bright Hope believes in partnering with the local, in-country church to care for the basic needs of children. Through school feeding programs one meal is offered to every child that attends school, helping them to focus more on their education and giving them Hope for the future. Since many families in extreme poverty cannot afford to feed their children, these school feeding programs are able to fulfill that need while helping children stay in school, breaking the cycle of poverty.
