Asante School Program

For years Gen Give has been supporting a school lunch program in multiple elementary and secondary schools neat Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. This past year the program was expanded to include the building on gardens at each school to provide fresh vegetables for the lunch program. We have also begun to replace old and dangerous cooking systems with “clean” burning stoves.

Our goal is for each participating school to have robust gardens that provide food and a safe, healthy place to cook the lunches.

We are also testing a program where one school is selected for deeper support in the form of a “Principal discretionary fund” that can be used for books, supplies and needed materials.
