The Stephen Kanja Primary school is situated at the very top of the Shimba hills, most of the children have to walk over ten kilometers every day to attend classes. The school does not have the means to feed any of the school children; as a result most of the children go the whole day without food. Last year our Camp Kenya Life clients built the school a kitchen/canteen and Deborah May, one of those clients initiated a feeding programme to feed the youngest children of the school. Deborah has raised over three thousand pounds so far, which is able to feed the nursery children every school day for three years. The total population of the school is 600 pupils; so far we have been feeding 110 nursery children. We feed the children at 10 am every day; with the money raised we have also bought cooking utensils and pay the salary of the parent/cook every month. At the moment the primary school children are fed Wimbe porridge, however we are hoping to feed form one with rice and beans in the near future as well. All the youngest children huddle in the kitchen waiting for their food.

This programme provides the children with the nourishment and energy needed for concentration and enables them to get the most out of their schooling improving academic performance. Deborah has started a very admirable cause that both she and the Camp Kenya Trust hope will be sustainable for many years to come.
