The feeding scheme is based at eNseleni Baptist Church. eNseleni is a township near Empangeni. Community workers from the church discovered that many orphans in the informal areas were not receiving food every day and many went to bed hungry. In 2009 we started a feeding scheme where the children could come after school on their way home. They were fed twice a week and given food to take home for their younger siblings who were unable to come to the church.
The program starts at 2pm as the children come home from school. They are treated to games, bible stories, helped with homework and are fed.
Looking into the future, we would like build our own building to run this program from so that it can also be used as a crèche in the mornings.
