Yesterday being #Worldfoodday2018, the Creative Director of Thedabigal teamed up with “Dreams from Slums” @dreamsfromtheslum to donate food stuffs to 20 families living in Ajegunle, it was a pretty exciting experience and seeing thankful faces made it all worth it.
To celebrate world Food Day; which is a day of action dedicated to tackling global hunger and as part of Dreams From The Slum Empowerment Initiative commitment to eradicate hunger starting from our local community, we collaborated with Thedabigal crew to provide food items like
Rice, Beans, Groundnut oil, Onion, Tomatoes, Salt and Maggie to 20 no income and low income families who live in the slum.
We believe that when children feed well, they will be well equipped to learn better and this is why through DFTS Food Bank we commemorated World Food Day 2018 by providing food items to their parents.
Most children living in the slum go to school without breakfast because they are either from a no income or low income family hence their parents’ inability to meet their very basic needs especially feeding.
This has made more children to miss school and end up dropping out of school.
Providing food items for families is a way of curbing this and we are grateful to everyone that supported.
