$5.00 a month will provide food for a child in a school which is run in a home outside of Arusha.  This school, which has 25 children, is in a very poor area where the main food is ugali, a food made from corn flour and water. Unfortunately this does not provide adequate nutrition.  For $5.00 a 3-5 year-old child will be provided a nutritious lunch each day for a month.  This school, which teaches English, costs the parents $3.00 per month.  English instruction is important because the secondary schools are taught in English.  The eventual goal is to have a K-7 school.  The local school does not accept students until they are seven and costs $53.00 per month and instruction is only in the local language, Swahili.
