  • Need

    Need

    Provide healthy nutritious balanced meals to deprived children who are lacking the basic balance.
    These meals will be prepared and packaged by volunteers and cooked by a caterer, out of our community soup kitchen, benefiting 30 children p/day * 3 days p/week, 90 cyp per week. We are piloting our idea on a small scale of just 90 meals per week to see how the programme will work out. We plan to expand the service providing affordable low cost meals to many more deprived cyp and their families.

    Solution

    Through offering balanced meals to 90 children and young people per week, they will effectively be able to improve skills in many other areas including school and academic performance, social and communication and life skills.
    We are keen to launch a pilot of providing healthy balanced meals programme for disengaged and deprived children who often do not receive a adequate healthy balanced meal. The programme will be run entirely by volunteers of the community.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To ensure that children and young people receive a balanced meal during their day


    Activities

    » To provide meals to 90 children and young people

    What success will look like

    We will put a BDA system monitoring evaluation system – (before, during, after), including surveys, observation, reference from schools, baseline data and feedback forms.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Children receiving a balanced healthy meal will benefit from a healthy balanced diet, a better digestion system, increased physical ability and improve academic ability. They will be able to sleep better and therefore face a better day at school, with improved performance and education outcomes.

    Risk

    Low level of beneficiaries - we are aware of many more than 90 children who need our services
    Low level of volunteers - we have a back up team of volunteers as well as we could recruit a couple of workers if need be
    Lack of funds - we have pledges promised from a couple of donors who will support the programme should the need arise
