The food choices you make at breakfast can have a ripple effect throughout your day. It is often hailed as the most important meal of the day, and for good reason.
The Breakfast A Child Program is a signature project of an all-female club, the Kiwanis Club of Bukit Bandaraya of Malaysia District. For a full scholar year, about two hundred (200) days a year, the club has been feeding less fortunate children breakfast daily since 2006.
The club members give importance to the principle of providing children with nutritious meals before they start the morning classes in partnership with the support of generous sponsors; individuals and corporations.
Nourishing The Next Generation of Leaders.
By providing breakfast to children in need, the Breakfast A Child program is helping to bridge the gap between academic achievement and access to necessities. Studies have shown that children who eat a healthy breakfast perform better academically and have better attendance rates.
Another aspect of the Breakfast A Child initiative is the way it promotes community engagement and Kiwanis volunteerism. Volunteers are often the backbone of the program, helping to prepare and serve meals, as well as providing support and mentorship to children in need.
It requires a deep understanding of the local context, a commitment to sustainability and community engagement, and a focus on empowering the next generation to succeed.
By taking a comprehensive and strategic approach through addressing the root causes of food insecurity and creating a ripple effect of positive change, the Breakfast A Child program can continue to make a meaningful impact in the lives of children and families in need.
Ensuring this signature project remains sustainable over the long term, requires a multi-pronged approach that addresses both short-term needs, such as funding and volunteer support, as well as long-term goals, such as building strong partnerships with local schools and business organizations.
