Give Students Nutritious Meals in Tanzania

Give Students Nutritious Meals in Tanzania

Located in Eastern Africa, Tanzania is the region’s most populated country. It borders the Indian Ocean and is situated between Kenya and Mozambique. Tanzania is one the world’s poorest countries. The economy depends on agriculture, leaving Tanzanians particularly vulnerable to drought and other weather-related maladies.
Children need proper nutrition to stay healthy, grow up strong, and reach their full potential. Unfortunately, many around the world have no access to stable sources of food and suffer from malnutrition. While the children and their families hold onto their Maasai cultural traditions, they embrace the Catholic faith as it uplifts them from material and spiritual poverty. St. Luke’s baptizes 30 children into the Catholic faith each year. We have the opportunity to help feed underprivileged students so they may stay in school, learn, and achieve brighter futures.

Food and Education for the Children of Arusha

April – December 2023

The children of St. Luke’s Primary School had enough food for nutritious meals as they attended school in Endulen, Tanzania. Fr. Albano Mwombeki, CSSp welcomed new and returning students.

Maize, beans, rice, cooking oil, and ingredients for porridge were purchased at the beginning of the spring and again at the end of the summer. Surplus wheat was also available for the school opening when the need is even most acute.

These nutritious meals helped to decrease malnutrition among the children. Malnutrition has been shown to have a negative effect on learning.

In all, the school was able to support 300 (an increase from 2022) because of you!
