Give a Child a Chance: Feeding hungry minds

There's so much more to feeding a child’s hungry mind than providing an education.
You also have to feed their hungry mouths and fill their empty tummies. 
They need healthy meals to give the fuel they need to power them through each day.
 At Happy House, Mama Sue thinks of everything and in today's video she shares some vital facts and figures.
When she learnt that many of the kids coming into our school on our free-place Dr Danwata Scholarship Scheme, were arriving without breakfast she set up a breakfast club.
So every morning we not only have all the kids living at the Happy House to feed, we also have another 75+ arriving  to join them for a breakfast of porridge, sweet potatoes or fresh baked bread.
As Mama explains in today’s video, breakfast is just the start of it - 770 meals/healthy snacks are served by Happy House every day!
We give those children and young people on our Dr Danwata Scholarship Scheme books, uniforms, PE kits, shoes, school bags to equip them for their education in our well-resourced kindergarten, primary and secondary schools where they have enthusiastic and encouraging teachers.
But there’s more too.
Solar lights to cut down the risk of burns and fires caused by kerosene lamps in homes without power,  deodorants, sanitary pads, toothbrushes, shoe polishes – small things that make a huge difference in homes where  every day brings another struggle to earn what it takes to eke out a meagre existence.
For £20 a month (65p a day) you can Give a Child a Chance.
