HLF/RCCG CSR believes in providing every child with access to quality education, recognizing that addressing hunger is pivotal to achieving this goal. The School Feeding Initiative thus serves as a testament to the organization’s commitment to uplift communities, following the mandate of compassion and support found in the biblical book of Matthew. Guided by this divine inspiration, the initiative aims to nourish not only the bodies but also the minds of the young generation, empowering them to exceed expectations and make a meaningful impact on society.
HLF/RCCG CSR also acknowledges the urgency to fill the void of hunger and extend support to vulnerable segments of society. Aligned with the theme of RCCG’s 71st Convention, “Beyond Expectation,” the initiative aims to break perceived limitations and create a transformative impact on the lives of a million students in Lagos.
HLF/RCCG CSR’s School Feeding Initiative seamlessly aligns with the SDGs of Zero Hunger and Quality Education. The firm belief is that hunger should not hinder a child’s ability to learn and thrive. By providing daily nutritious meals to 1,000,000 students, the initiative aims to break barriers and pave the way for a brighter future where no child is left behind.
