REASON

DAVA Foods co-sponsors Victory Nursery School in Moshi, Tanzania, with the foundation FeEdAC; Feed and Educate African Children. Moshi is an area characterized by poverty, alcoholism and unemployment, but Victory Nursery School itself serves as a role model school in the area and is recognized by the local authorities.
 
The project was chosen due to Håkan Persson, CEO of DAVA Foods Sweden, because he founded FeEdAC. This ensures a personal commitment in the project from DAVA Foods and direct contact with the school. All money go directly to the school without administration costs or middle men.
 
The school has a 50/50 sex ratio. We put a lot of effort in not discriminating against gender. We focus on empowering girls with education so less of the girls risk child marriage, genital mutilation and get strengthened civil rights. In short, a better life. 
 
Educated girls also have an immense impact on the environment, as they get less children. Less children will have impact on the environment. Hardly put: more children mean more consumers. More consumers mean more consumption. Higher consumption means more carbon emissions. Therefore, in this case that women get less children can be of utmost importance. 
 

WE WILL

  • We contribute to that all children in the nursery school are prepared to go on to primary school. This is done through education by trained teachers in combination with playing and room for interaction between the children. An important component is also that the children are offered a well composed meal that includes eggs.

GOALS

  • Support Victory Nursery School, who takes care of approx. 100 children in age 3-6 years. Ensure that the children are prepared to move on to primary school.
  • Provide one well composed meal per day including egg to all 100 children in the school.
