More on Lunch Buddy and Star of Hope
So it's really easy to understand, for these children, schooling would be impossible without lunch they simply would stay home or look for food elsewhere. As a Lunch Buddy you also give the parents one less stomach to feed, without lunch at school, many of the children would be forced to work at home or scavenge.
Star of Hope schools serves the important school lunch every day. This also gives the family breadwinners a tremendous assistance in the fight to keep the children satisfied and healthy while they can continue their quest to be an income earner. The lunch also serves as an important motivation for some parents to continue sending their children to school instead of having to send them out to work. At Star of Hope, we say we help 40,000 children every day in 16 Countries and that is a lot of children and lunches!
