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.

45%

deaths in children under 5 are caused by poor nutrition – that’s 3.1 million children each year.

66 million

primary school-age children attend classes hungry.
