Thank you to ABP Food Group and Moy Park for matching #GivingTuesday donations

Kicking off the holiday season on Tuesday 1 December, #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to charitable giving.

This #GivingTuesday, Farm Africa is joining in to raise funds for our Christmas appeal, which focuses on our work with primary schools in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. For many students, the only proper daily meal they get is at school but unfortunately this often lacks the vital range of nutrients they need. Poor diets leave them vulnerable to malnourishment, which can cause serious, irreversible health problems like stunted growth and impaired cognitive development.

Farm Africa believes that children everywhere deserve a healthy diet so that they can reach their full potential. That’s why we are helping primary schools in Nairobi grow urban vegetable gardens so that students, teachers and parents can come together to grow nutritious, fresh vegetables that children can eat for lunch, adding much-needed nutrients to their diet and enabling them to learn and grow better.

We are delighted that Food for Good Platinum Sponsors ABP Food Group and Moy Park have generously agreed to match donations to the appeal, giving £1 for every £1 donated online between 17 November and 1 December - making gifts go twice as far.
