There is a school feeding program in a little village in Niger. This part of the country is rocked by famine and malnutrition numbers are staggering. The children who attend this school walk as far as 5km to get there and often arrive hungry. Knowing there is food at school has seen enrollment double in the school, with even numbers of boys and girls. With full bellies (this is their morning porridge being served) they are able to learn and grow!
