Duna e mucha un man:
Increasingly more children in Curacao go to school on an empty stomach. The financial situation of many households is such that there is no space for a daily breakfast. It should not surprise anyone that a child that goes to school without having breakfast is not in the condition to perform optimally and often this situation results in dropouts. The project has been running since March 1998. Since then 1300 children qualified for a free breakfast at school. The project is based on giving he child a helping hand which consists of 5 fingers:
- supply breakfast
- after school activities home work and guidance
- Social guidance (eg. foster parents)
- Child and parents instruction towards education, healthy nutrition, sex, manners, addiction and budget control
- educational materials among other reading books and other school necessities for personal use at school.
