If the brain is not supplied with sufficient nutrients, then its entire development is affected. The ability to learn is therefore compromised.
115 of the 450 school children at the San Roque Elementary School are undernourished.
Many children in the Philippines are undernourished. In order to make sure; not only that the children go to school, but that they are also capable of learning and completing their school career successfully, we have started a programme at the San Roque Elementary School, in which the undernourished children receive a hot meal from the school's own organic garden every day. The garden project is supported by the Greenfinity Foundation.
