the kitchen project

At the Primary School, 483 children are currently getting a hot meal a day and Mealiepap is available at 9:10. The State School Feeding Program provides the cornmeal if it does not interfere. The porridge is cooked by committed, volunteer mothers on two wood fire stations. The students traditionally eat the porridge with their hands from a plate. Unfortunately, this is often just a cardboard fished out of the garbage. When the school runs out of maize flour or if there is no firewood, there is nothing to eat. For many, the only meal a day falls out. But you cannot learn when being hungry.

What we want to do further: “Organize cornmeal when it has run out and improve hygiene. But above all we would like to build a school garden kitchen during our next stay.
A garden kitchen, next to the existing ones, with sinks and running water, refrigerator, electric stove and kitchen appliances. In this kitchen the harvest from the school and orchard can be processed. Furthermore a variety of kitchen-workshops could be organized.“
