2019 Trip To Yimbo

Volunteers and School Explore Development of a School Lunch Program.

The effects of climate change continue to affect Yimbo. The longer dry seasons and shorter rainy seasons have exacerbated food insecurity in the village. Muguna School attests to many families that can barely feed their children three square meals a day.
Majority of the students come to school hungry yet there is an expectation for them to focus on learning. These kids run home during lunch break only to get a sip of water and return to school. Read More

Muguna Students in Need of Classroom Supplies

Muguna’s enrollment is currently pushing on 474 students for a school that was built to accommodate 300 students. The government financial support has not caught up with the levels of growing need. As a result, the school lacks adequate facilities and instructional supplies. The July 2019 volunteers delivered over 800 pencils & erasers, 500 writing books, 600 reading books and 10 textbooks per classroom. Yes, that’s correct! The teachers only have 10 textbooks per classroom and these are required text books. Read More
