According to the Food Research and Action Center, children's academic performance is highly impacted by lack of proper diet. Children who skip meals are more likely to have low test scores and repeat a grade. Food Keeps African children in school. Hunger and poverty are major reasons why children drop out of school. My innovation therefore is to provide children with food in schools. Most of these children have to walk for long distances everyday to and from school, on an empty stomach. They have a right to good food and nutrition, better health and education, just what my project will help provide. To do this, we will set up a farm project where the community will work on to grow food. We will however provide for all the incentives needed. Any surplus from the farm will then be sold and the money used to buy school uniforms for the children.
