ZAT Food Project Details

Can you help us fund one month of food for the ZAT Schools?

Can you believe that it costs approximately $7.00 for one month of food for each child at the schools in Ziway and Adami Tulu? That’s maybe the cost of a single meal at a restaurant, two coffee drinks, or a pair of cheap earrings. The $7.00 covers the cost of a nutrient-rich porridge eaten every morning for breakfast and a well-balanced lunch. The cost also pays for the staff salaries for the cooks and kitchen staff that work so hard each day to make their healthy meals! The most common fruit they receive with lunch is bananas and oranges are a special treat due to their high cost. The bread is made fresh at the schools unless there is a problem with their electricity. This food program is sustainable and cost-effective; and it truly benefits the children that attend the schools as they are ready to learn and have the energy and nutrients they need to focus and do their best.

Here are the final “goals” we would like to attain: 
$7,000 covers the cost for each student to receive two meals each day while at school
$1,500 covers the salaries for the cooks and kitchen staff
$8,500 is the total amount. Instead of focusing on the big amount, think about how far just $7.00 can go! How many children would you like to help through the food program? Maybe giving up one or two meals out can make it possible for you to support one or two children for one month of meals! Pray with us as we reach out and share a meal or two with these beautiful children in Ethiopia. 

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." Matthew 25:35-36
