The school feeding programme is such an important part of what we do here that it’s been heartbreaking not to feed the kids for a term as the factory that makes the corn soya blend has been closed. However, one door shuts and another opens and all that and we managed this week to get maize meal and pigeon pea for the kids. I’m reliably informed by people who know more than me that pigeon pea is uber-nutritious and therefore great for the kids. And a bit different than the plain xima they normally eat. This week Dona Amina and I have distributed to all of the schools in the programme and are looking forward to seeing the kids grow healthy and well fed for the rest of the term.
