HCOC Feeding Program

What We Do -Feeding Centers -last.jpeg

Before the HCOC feeding program was implemented,
many orphans
and vulnerable children were going to school hungry, which affected their ability to concentrate in class and learn effectively.

They were not receiving
the necessary nutrients for growth and development.


The daily nutritious feeding program has led to multiple benefits for the children:

  • Better health

  • More alert and focused in class leading to improved academic performance    

  • Motivation to come to school where they also will be fed

  • Better social protection, since they will spend more of the day in school vs being isolated at home and having too much free time

  • More opportunity for girls to progress, since they too are included in the feeding program and can attend school
