How to Participate

One of the Bukati-Project Goals is:

Feed the AIDS orphans and destitute children:
Provide lunch for kindergarten children 5 days a week and for all other children at least 2 days a week. Children who are fed are able to learn. The lunch program will run 3, 4 or 5 days per week as more money is raised.

Update: Kindergarten, grade 1 and 2 were fed 5 days a week all year. Grades 3 to 8 were fed 4 times a week from January to April. But with the high price of food, and the drought delaying the cropping, and then the harvest being only 70 percent the expected yield, the older children have only been fed 3 times a week since May.
