for the com­mu­nity, by the com­mu­nity

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - NAKED -

In­te­gral to the suc­cess of The Lunch­box Fund project is its part­ner­ship with lo­cal go­gos and moth­ers, who are re­cruited to pre­pare meals and are paid a stipend for their work.The Lunch­box Fund thus em­pow­ers these women in their com­mu­ni­ties and cre­ates in­come gen­er­a­tion, which en­cour­ages fur­ther com­mu­nity in­volve­ment and up­lift­ment.This ‘on the ground’ mon­i­tor­ing net­work en­ables com­mu­nity mem­bers to as­sist in iden­ti­fy­ing chil­dren at risk, those in need of nu­tri­tional sup­port and those not at­tend­ing school. Each project is then tai­lored to the needs of the com­mu­nity, rather than

im­pos­ing a ‘one size fits all’ pol­icy. In this way, each school is able to find the best way to flour­ish with the sup­port of The Lunch­box Fund.
