Food for thought | A Ramadan fundraiser

By: ARAHA | Publish date: April 4, 2019

Story cover

Come join us on our annual Ramadan fundraiser at Columbia Heights high school as we raise awareness and funds for our school lunch program in the Horn of Africa region. Our goal for the year is to sponsor 5,000 students; at the event, we hope to sponsor 1,000 students. Our keynote speaker will be none other than the one and only Sh. Yusuf Estes

About School Lunch Program:
Hunger is a serious obstacle to learning. Students who don’t get enough to eat lack focus, earn weaker grades than their well-fed peers and have a harder time staying in school. Daily hunger can impair education and consequently an entire life.

To combat this, ARAHA recently kicked off a school lunch program across many schools in the Horn of Africa region. This has the triple benefit of alleviating hunger for children living in poverty, ensuring that the students maintain their focus in class, and providing an incentive for children to attend and stay in school for longer periods of time. In recent months, we have also expanded our program in some schools to include breakfast meals.
