Our families are so poor that they cannot afford to send their children to school and lose the income from their work. Rice 4 Class has been a cornerstone of PSE programs and includes the weekly distribution of 3.5kg of rice per child (sometimes more if necessary) to the most vulnerable families. $12/month is all it costs to ensure children can go to school… and have dinner when they come back home!
In 2022 (Jan.-Dec.), we are expecting that 1,050 families will need our help, which would require 378 tons of rice for the year (31.5 tons/month = 30kg/family/month on average).
A donation of $1,440 helps subsidize rice distributions for 10 families for an entire year.
