The Mozambique School Lunch Initiative is a non-profit organization that invests in community-owned school lunch programs to improve child nutrition and stimulate agricultural development. We are a team of Mozambicans and Americans who are passionate about creating opportunities for children to live healthy, productive lives.
Eighty Percent of the population of Mozambique cannot afford an adequate diet. Almost half of children are considered chronically malnourished.
We're changing that. And you can too.
This harms children's physical and cognitive development and reinforces cyclical poverty in rural areas. School feeding programs are a targeted way to address this challenge, but currently reach less than 5 percent of all primary schools in Mozambique.
By working at the grassroots level and empowering communities to be part of the value chain, we create a sustainability-mechanism that allows school lunch programs to scale to more schools.
