This program takes a holistic approach, focusing on nutrition, education, and empowerment, and it has made remarkable strides in preventing early pregnancies among young girls. Let’s explore the inspiring success story of how the LUH Feeding Program has transformed lives, championing the cause of adolescent well-being and shaping a brighter future.
“LUH has addressed our most pressing issue of hunger and malnutrition. The lunch, fruits, and eggs have helped create a conducive learning environment that fosters student engagement, motivation, and active participation in school activities. Since the beginning of the feeding program, not a single case of early pregnancies has been reported. Learners no longer spend time searching for food elsewhere, reducing the risk of being lured into engaging in risky behaviors. LUH’s feeding program nourishes not only our students’ bodies but also their minds, leading to enhanced overall performance and educational outcomes. We are grateful to be one of the beneficiary schools of LUH’s school feeding program. May God bless all those who have made this possible.”Mrs. Eddah Sais, Headteacher of Elangata-wuas Primary School
