Christmas 2018

CRED Partner update

Welcome to the CRED Foundation Partner Update newsletter!
Christmas is coming, and this month we focus on programmes that enable project beneficiaries to have a meal, which for many will be the only one they eat that day.

As you prepare to celebrate Christmas, would you consider donating the cost of your Christmas Day meal, so that others can also eat this Christmas?

£3 would feed a child for a week, £12 would feed a child for a month
– how much could you consider giving?

Focusing on Food


Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Feeding 400 children
Cost = 50p per child per day

The children, all from the local communities that have some of the lowest levels of income in the city, are those who otherwise can’t afford a regular meal. They get a lunchtime meal and are also given help with schooling costs.

Butterfly Space

Nkhata Bay, Malawi
Feeding 230 children

Butterfly Space projects provide lunch to 230 children across 5 sites. Four of these are nursery schools, including one at the Mpamba Centre for disabled adults, and the fifth site is Stepping Stones Primary School.

Ellilta-Women at Risk

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
174 children in after-school sessions

35 children in day-care sessions
65 women receiving food parcels

Ellilta provides a range of support to its beneficiaries that include provision of food items. The school-age children get access to after-school sessions; pre-school children attend day care whilst their mothers are on the rehabilitation programme, and women who are struggling financially get given monthly food parcels.

Good News Peace and Development (GNPDR)

Kigali, Rwanda
Feeding 182 children

At the Comfort Primary school for ex-street kids, GNPDR feeds the children a lunch time meal every school day of the week, This ensures that all children get at least one meal per day, and also helps them concentrate better in lessons.

Spurgeons Academy

Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya
Feeding 442 children at Spurgeons Academy

Providing Food parcels for 35 child-headed households

As well as providing high-quality education for children who can’t afford to go to state-run schools, Spurgeons Academy also provides the children with porridge for breakfast, and githeri for lunch.

And for child-headed households, food parcels are available to get the children through the weekends.

The Voice School Trust (TVST)

Usa River, Arusha, Tanzania
Feeding 68 children

TVST runs a weekend programme for local children from impoverished families. This includes two meals per day, homework help, arts, crafts and games. The meals are the only ones that the children reliably get at weekends.

This Christmas season, please consider making a donation towards the Food Projects run by our CRED Partners.

£3 will feed a child for a week, £12 will feed a child for a month

Whether it is the cost of your Christmas meal, or just the cost of a coffee, every contribution will help to ensure that more of the children supported by CRED, through the work of its Partners, get to enjoy a meal each day through the coming year.

Thank you, and wishing you a very happy Christmas,
from all of us at CRED Foundation.
