𝐀 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡𝐲 𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐭, 𝐚 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡𝐲 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝!

At GRI, we recognize that a hungry child can never concentrate in class. Considering that over 80% of the learner population in most of the settlement schools in Kiryandongo Refugee settlement are refugee children who face a lot of hardships in their families, making feeding a big challenge, we chose to make the feeding program one of the priority programs at Ubuntu Model Primary School, which acts as our laboratory.

Under this program, learners are served with nutritious porridge made from a blend of soya beans and maize flour for breakfast, and beans and posho (maize flour) plus some vegetables for lunch. As supporting refugees has never been a one-man effort, Feed the Hungry East Africa (FTHEA), one of the education partners within the settlement, came through to support in the same program by availing 100 boxes of Manna pack, each box containing 13.5 kilograms this first term. Manna pack is a nutritious and scrumptious food very much adored by our learners; it comprises of rice, assorted vegetables, soy and vitamins.

Just like FTHEA, we encourage you to complement our efforts in this cause! You can reach out to us on
