In 2018, I decided to take my family to visit one of our sponsor child in Phillipines. Her name is Nica and she’s 10 years old.
I didn’t really understand what real poverty was until we visited her house.
Nica lived with her parents and 3 siblings in this tiny 4 meter square shack. I don’t even know how they all fitted into this small area.
By sponsoring her, we could provide food for Nica and her family.
It means Nica is able to go to school instead of going out to find food for her family. It also means she’s able to concentrate while she’s at school and perform her best.
When we feed a hungry child, we’re supporting so much more than just their little tummies.
Who is The Lunchbox Fund?
Bayeco has teamed up with The Lunchbox Fund who identifies schools to provide meals to children at schools in Africa.
The aim is to provide meals so that no children should be kept from learning from hunger or household food insecurity.
Feed a child. Nourish a mind.
By feeding the children at school, it encourages children to attend school and enables them to concentrate and learn while they are there.
Lunchbox fund is the only national organisation to offer a daily varied school lunch. The meals guarantee that the children receive up to 50% of their daily micronutrient intake.
100% of what you give goes to feeding children
Every year Lunchbox Fund hosts a Live Auction Fundraising Event to raise the organisation's core-operating funds. By covering these operating costs upfront, 100% of your donations made to The Lunchbox fund translates directly into meals for school children.
It costs 0.20c to feed a child in need a nutritious meal.
Can you make a difference?
Yes! It makes more of a difference than you think. $1 will be donated with every order made online with us. This will provide 5 hot meals to children in schools in Africa!
Your help in feeding these children means they can thrive, be educated and give them the chance to break out of the poverty cycle.
I sincerely like to thank you for your support and contributions.
