We are here on earth to help others;

THE POWER OF PROTEIN
In the midst of great poverty, CHILD partners with Ukulapha to provide protein enrichment to every child at SPS every school day of the year. Every grade R/kindergarten child gets a cup of fresh milk every morning. Their teachers say the children are ‘glowing’ as a result of their daily cup. The kiddies guard their milk carefully, not spilling a drop!
Every child in the whole school gets a vegetable protein – lentils, beans, tofu chunks plus masala and spices added to the starch they normally receive, to make a delicious meal!
And the vegetables from the garden will also enhance these nutritious meals!
For many, maybe most of the children, this is the only meal they might receive in a day, certainly the most nutritious. Some of the children are also living with HIV and/or are orphaned. These meals make some difference to hungry tummies and starved brains.
