The maize harvest in Malawi has been good this year, so there should be no problems with food-security. This girl is really enjoying her meal and the same applies to the children at our primary school. We provide our children with porridge in the morning, something we have been doing since 2004. Back then there was serious food shortage and we noticed the consequences of hunger in the study-results of the children at our school. We introduced porridge as breakfast and the results were so impressive, that we continue this program up to now.
The relatively small investment produces big improvements in children, both in learning and in health and since a a few years we do the same program at other schools.
