Change the life of a child…for just £3 a month

Food4Africa UK (SCIO) raises awareness and supports the needs of vulnerable children in Southern Africa.

Our focus is on early childhood development, to help give vulnerable children the start they need to become the future of their country. Our aims for children are to:

  • Alleviate hunger and poverty
  • Maximise energy levels and enhance immune systems to fight off diseases
  • Develop ‘brain’ potential for future learning
  • Promote better concentration and a sense of well-being
  • Make it easier for them to cope with everyday schooling

Working with local partners, our support includes feeding vulnerable children a daily ‘porridge’, a unique blend containing 19 vitamins and minerals. This increases their health and well-being, prepares the children for school and supports the future sustainability of local communities in Southern Africa.

Our monthly activity reporting ensures we know where the children are, how much food is being distributed, and most importantly, the impact the food is having on their well-being.

We also support children with a number other projects, such as arranging school and learning materials to be sent from Scottish schools to South Africa, and the knitting and distribution of 4,000 teddies and dollies from Scotland.

Our message is positive and optimistic – which is why we have so many photos of our children smiling. Children are inherently positive. When their basic needs are met, like one healthy meal a day given by a caring person, they smile, they are happy. Of course we see many sad children. Our message is that we can (and do!) make them happy. From the regular monitoring and feedback we receive, we know we are making a difference.
