Invisible's School Feeding Program, Manila

Malnutrition among children is a serious concern in the Philippines today. Hunger and malnutrition are a serious hindrance to improving student achievement and outcomes in the public schools. Present data indicates that there’s around 562,000 severely wasted and around 1.5M wasted elementary school children or a total of about 2M children in the Philippines. In Quezon City alone, there are around 10,000 severely wasted children. In partnership with Ateneo de Manila University’s Center for Educational Development, invisible works towards the improvement of hunger and malnutrition by providing feeding programs to these severely wasted children. They receive free daily lunch every day. This meal is likely their only meal of the day.

For just £20.86 a malnourished child can have a nutritious daily meal in our school feeding program for one year! That amount includes operational expenses eg. water, gas, salary for 2 paid personnel in addition to the daily food ingredients. Children in our feeding program are monitored regularly. BMI and school performance are measured every 3 months. Once a child is enrolled into our feeding program, he/she is entitled to receive free meals for the entire duration of his/her primary education.
