Lessons of the alphabet and arithmetic fell on deaf ears at Meto Primary School before the school lunch program existed. When Principal Justus Sempeta felt the students were not coming to school because of their hunger, he asked Integrity Worldwide for help. Today your donations provide school lunches three days a week.
Food prices have more than tripled, forcing families already suffering in poverty to choose which children will get to eat and which will go hungry. Many children that attend school do so hungry and their poor test scores prove it.
In 2011 Integrity Worldwide, at the request of the Meto School System started to offer free school lunches for all 700 students at Meto Primary School. For many students, it is the only meal they will receive all day. Integrity provides lunches three days each week thanks to your donations and the people of Meto, realizing the importance of school lunches, have started to contribute as well. Integrity Worldwide partners with the school and parents to feed the students.
