GoalThe goal of this project is to provide a hot, nutritious lunch every school day to 100 students in Tijuana, Mexico.
SummaryThis project seeks to raise $25,200 each year to improve children's nutrition to help them grow and greatly increase their capacity for learning in school.
DescriptionThe Baptist Grade School in Tijuana, Mexico is addressing the need for better nutrition for students. Extreme poverty means that children go to school on an empty stomach and without proper nutrition, further impact their ability to learn. In 2014, the school was given a generous donation to build a kitchen in order to prepare hot, nutritious meals each school day. The meals are very low cost, with the ingredients bought in bulk, but unfortunately many children cannot afford to purchase this nutritious alternative to cheaper snack foods. Some even go hungry until their parents get home from work and prepare the evening meal.
Suggested Gifts$21 will feed a child for a month. $210 will feed a child a hot meal every school day for the entire school year. $2,100 will provide lunch for all 100 students for a month.
Prayer RequestsPlease pray with Patti Long and the staff of the Baptist Grade School that all children at the school will be able to eat a nutritious hot meal every day.
