Meals for Hungry Schoolchildren in Jacmel
BGR’s partner in this project, US-based Art Creation Foundation for Children (ACFFC), was founded in 1999 with the mission “to build a passionate community of future leaders, visionaries and dynamic thinkers who are empowered to better their lives and their world through the arts and education in Jacmel, Haiti.” The partnership with BGR will provide the 34 students at the school with at least one nutritious, filling meal per day, six days per week. Many children in Haiti will not attend daily education programs if meals are not a component of the program. For many of the students enrolled at ACFFC, the meals they receive there are their only opportunity to eat. Without the feeding program many of the children would spend their days either looking for food or working rather than attending school.
