Healthy students, body and soul.
In January 2008, the Amos Youth Centre (AYC) began providing daily meals to its most vulnerable students. Known as "The Breakfast Club", the program quickly grew. Over 250 students are provided a meal each day of the school week.
Since students have had access to this feeding program, their attendance at school has increased and their performance improved. This program proves that a dollar goes such a long way as it supplements so many aspects of the youths' lives.
Some participants in "The Breakfast Club" are HIV-positive and take daily antiretroviral drugs, the medication for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. This drug is known to be extremely tough on the body without proper food and nutrition.
