Nicaragua: With a good meal comes a good education
Francisco Sequeira (7), a student in the first grade at Las Joyas, does reading practice after having received a hot and healthy meal. “What I like best is the beans and rice and I feel bad if I don’t eat. I wish that we could eat at school every day,” Francisco said smiling. Teacher Luisa Castillo from the fourth grade believes that meals improves the nutritional status of the students, yields greater academic results and improves attendance, which in this school has reached 98%.
