South Sudan School Lunch Program
Approximately 350 children in South Sudan, will receive BGR-sponsored lunches throughout the 10.5 months of their 2017 school year. Living Water Community Transformation, a BGR partner organization, operates two Christian primary schools in Akot, providing education to a total of 700 students. Funding from other sources will supply lunches for the remaining students.
The daily lunch program optimizes nutrition and growth for these children during their critical years of educational, physical and personal development. “Well-nourished, healthy children have more consistent school attendance, stay in school longer and learn better,” a BGR partner says.
