Kentucky meals for hungry children
KFC Add Hope Namibia was launched last week at Otjomuise Project School in Windhoek with the aim of feeding and educating children. The sustenance initiative started in 2011 and has been implemented in four schools in Windhoek with the intention of adding more schools every year. KFC currently provides food for 823 children at the Otjomuise Project School with one nutritious meal a day.
Add Hope is part of KFC Africa’s Corporate Social Investment to alleviate poverty through working with local grassroots charities and organisations to close the gap in the number of children living without enough food to eat.
In future, this project will be linked to KFC outlets and extend to team members and consumers as is the case with KFC Add Hope South Africa where some 40,000 children are receiving food. The Add Hope initiative was inspired by the notion that the world would be a better place if children didn’t have to worry about where their next meal was coming from and only had to focus on playing and learning.
