Project Description: The Ukama Community Foundation currently feeds 120 children per day with wholesome nutritious home cooked meals. Kids in feeding scheme are from Vrygrond, one of the poorest townships in South Africa. Along with the community leaders this enables children to develop early childhood learning and nutrition in order to give them a better start in life. In 2017 we will be increasing our outreach to almost 200 children. The work we are doing in this community is enabling feeding, nutrition, support and development of children who come from families living on around $2 per day.
