Africa lives on $1.25 a day or less, a principal factor in causing widespread hunger. Many parents cannot afford to give food to their school going children every school day.On average 8 out of 10 children will go without breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Worse still, most African children will have their first and at times only meal a day after 5 pm.
About Breakfast Africa
Our children whom we found on the streets, homeless, and oth- ers abandoned by parents and families; today are the pride of the community. Most have moved on to college and set precedence as the first to matriculate at universi- ties in the entire family. What a joy of delight to report this wonderful transformation!
the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground, with better concentration, problem-solving skills, and eye-hand coordination. Breakfast Africa aims to start feeding at least 20,000 children every morning with a balanced breakfast meal.
