Describe in detail what your Organisation does:
Sprouting Minds Organization is currently involved with a school in Durbanville, South Africa. With the help of the teachers we identify children who do not eat at home and then we provide them with a nutritious breakfast and snack so that their tummies can be filled. This will help them with their brain development as good nutrition and brain development goes hand in hand. With a full tummy they then have the energy and focus needed to listen to their teacher and learn. This will help them to achieve better academically and ultimately in life.
Our aim is to help the identified children from grade R – 3.
