Story

A cooked meal for each pupil is the goal at Mbollet-Ba Primary School in The Gambia.

This is Our Global School's 2019 campaign. Read more here. and download the fundraiser information pack.

With students coming from large families living in subsistence conditions, school food is vital for their prospects. Hungry or malnourished children cannot learn. Food provision also keeps school attendance high: parents are more likely to release children from urgent farming tasks, if they know that going to school also means a meal to their child.

In 2019, with support from Nutrition students at Westminster University, Our Global School is going to work together with Mbollet-Ba school to improve its food supply and cooking arrangements. This complements OGS ongoing work since 2009, using partnering with UK schools to improve the teaching and learning at Mbollet-Ba.

No school meals support is provided from the Gambian Government. Distributions of plain rice under the World Food Programme stopped in 2017. The local community needs help to set up better food supplies and cooking arrangements.
