The World Federation has launched its annual FILL MY CUP APPEAL 2017 to raise funds to provide a hot nutritious breakfast for children in East Africa.  This breakfast at school program provides hot porridge to students so they can find success in learning from a full stomach.

Across Africa, 23 million primary school children attend school hungry.  This has a severe effect on their ability to learn. Giving a child a healthy breakfast can improve their concentration, motivation and general behaviour.  This in turn will boost their academic performance and allow them to make the most of their education.
