Fortifying young children.
The Malilangwe Trust’s Nutrition Programme gives young learners a healthy platform to work from. Every school day, 20,000 students receive a nourishing 300ml cup of mahewu – a porridge-based drink. Apart from providing much-needed nutrition, headmasters of the schools where these drinks are distributed have confirmed that these drinks are also increasing school attendance.
The nutritious drinks:
– boost the children’s health
– support increased classroom participation
– help them thrive in school
Young school children receive a mahewu-drink (300ml) every school day32
Schools and 4 orphanages serve as distribution centres and benefit from the Feeding Programme
