Lunch plan for kids

Shayal Devi
Thursday, February 06, 2014

FOURTEEN students of a rural school who had poor attendance records because they were unable to bring lunch to school will now benefit from a new program implemented by the NGO Soroptimist International.

Lautoka branch president Zareena Bi said they presented groceries to the Shri Ram Govind Memorial Primary School in Vaivai, Lautoka, for its lunch program for unfortunate students.

"The students will be provided lunch at the school every day," she said.

"The club started this program at the school in the third term last year since they were unable to bring lunch to school due to their social circumstances.

"Due to this program, the attendance rate increased immensely for 70 per cent of the students in this program."

Headteacher Ravindra Dutt said: "We are very thankful to the organisation for this help."
