You’ve helped provide vital school meals for children like Vanessa in Uganda

As a sponsored child, Vanessa's daily school meals are helping her focus on her studies. Thank you for making a difference for children like Vanessa!

15-year-old Vanessa lives with her grandmother and cousins in Uganda. She dreams of becoming either a news anchor or a hairdresser when she grows up and staying in school is bringing her closer to achieving her dreams.

When children have access to school meals, they are more likely to complete their education. It reduces food costs for families and gives children the energy they need to pay attention in class.

Vanessa sees a big difference in her life thanks to the school feeding program. She says,

“Having lunch at school keeps me active in class, with much energy, without any panic for classes to end soon so that I can rush back home. It gives me peace to be at school so sure that I will have a meal. It keeps me feeling good until that time when we officially have to leave school and return home. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Canadian Feed The Children so much for enabling me and many other children to be in school.

Thank you for helping feed and nourish children with your critical support!
