School Breakfast

Every day, Pamoza International feeds approximately 1,500 students through its School Breakfast Program. We are currently operating in four communities in North Malawi – Zowe, Mchingasanya, Mseza, and Kahelere. Each community has its own primary (i.e. elementary) school. When Pamoza began operations in 2005, many students were attending school without eating breakfast. This trend contributed to malnutrition in the community and poor academic performance and attendance among students. With leadership from community members, Pamoza started a school farm at each school. These farms are managed and harvested by community members, and the produce is used to make enriched porridge, which is prepared and distributed by women from the community. As a result of the School Breakfast Program, student attendance has increased by more than 40% and the overall health of the community has improved. Together, we are creating sustainable programs for children and families.
Check out the video below for a closer look at our breakfast program.

Support our School Breakfast Program by donating to Pamoza or contact us to adopt one of our school farms. It costs $1,000 to purchase enough seed, fertilizer, and storage chemicals to support a 10-acre school farm for a whole year.
