The big stir

Posted on January 2, 2018


That looks hard work… the daily task of cooking posho for 566 hungry school kids! Posho is a thick maize flour porridge, served with with beans cooked with cabbage and onions. It’s traditional and filling, but does not provide the nutrition needed to withstand the many illnesses and infections they face in the slum.

Our pupils are selected from the very poorest families: most eat at home just once a day and sometimes not at all – which means that tiredness, low concentration and vulnerability to disease all hinder their progress.

Our aim now is to produce more of our own food. We have a small field and garden to grow rice and vegetables and have bought some ducks, rabbits, pigs and a milk cow in order to vary this diet. If you’d like to help us develop this project, just £5 would help a lot! Please donate here.
