EDUCATION  AND NUTRITION

Encouraging families to enroll their children in school and gain access to education

In order to give the most destitute children the opportunity to get an education, Children Action finances a number of programmes that promote access to education.

"A meal at school acts as a magnet to get children into the classroom (...) School feeding programmes achieve much more than feeding children."
