During the drought of 2023, up to 40% of children in some counties dropped out of school due to hunger. In pursuit of our mission, FarmWorks launched Malaika Kitchens Рa not-for-profit, community owned school feeding support program. Over the last 12 months, we have established Malaika Kitchens in 9 schools, feeding 6,000 children their largest meal of the day. It is the most cost-efficient program in Kenya, with parents contributing to the purchase of the food.
