Southern African School Feeding Inititiative

Rise Against Hunger (formerly known as Stop Hunger Now), in collaboration with ADRA International and Islamic Relief, is spearheading a three-year school-feeding initiative in the Southern African countries of Mozambique, Malawi, Madagascar, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. While these countries have made considerable advancements towards achieving stronger food security, the most powerful El Niño on the record has stretched the livelihoods and safety nets of many households in the region. Seeing the existing need in Southern Africa, Rise Against Hunger is responding with its implementing partners to provide life-changing aid through region wide school-feeding programs. The expected outcomes of the initiative are to improve nutrition for school-age children, increase enrollment and attendance rates at schools and further involvement of staff, the local community and private sector in the project. During the 2017 school year, the project is expected to support more than 20,000 school-age children by delivering more than 14,200,000 Rise Against Hunger meals to more than 70 schools in the five Southern African countries.
