Meals = Education for 5,000 Students
A daily meal can often be the impetus for a child to go to school in Haiti. WCK is bringing kids to the classroom by building new school kitchens while our partners, CESAL, are delivering quality education and building schools. In 2016, WCK and CESAL launched the Food For Thought program where WCK built 10 new kitchens for schools built by CESAL.
The kitchens are equipped with:
- New clean/improved cook stoves
- New kitchens with prep tables and sanitation equipment
- Food safety and sanitation training for cooks
Over 50 school cooks received new equipment and training and are able to feed 5,000 students every day.
WCK will build 10 more school kitchens in 2017! Meals = Education!
