NOURISH is a non-profit organisation focused on supporting under-privileged students through their education institutions. The aid we provide is intended to keep them focused at school, with the hope that they will become successful upon graduating and later contribute towards the betterment of their communities.

Why Nourish?

Nourish believes that education is the best way to break the cycle of poverty. But when these students are hungry, in addition to the lack of food at home, the students lose focus and concentrate less in class. Hence, we worked closely with the teachers of the selected schools to identify the most promising under-privileged students and we would then sponsor his/her family with a food bag every month in exchange for their attendance in school. The food bag is designed with a dietician to include all the necessary grain, protein and dairy such as rice, eggs, flour, milk powder, milo, anchovies etc that all homes with children should be able to afford. We also educate the families to use the provided recyclable bags when they collect the items so it is better for the environment.

Why Sabah?

According to a report by the Malaysian government, the incidences of poverty are highest in the state of Sabah.

How much does a food bag cost?

Each food bag costs RM250, and we aim to sponsor a family for a complete school year i.e. 12 months, as education takes time. Our aid is designed for the long term, as long as the children stay in school. The cost to sponsor a family for a year is RM250 x 12 months = RM3,000. 

What would we like to do?

In line with our beliefs, NOURISH would like to start providing food aid and support to 5 deserving but underprivileged school children in SK Bandar Tawau, Sabah, Borneo. This means that we would like to raise a total of (5 x RM3,000 per family per year) RM15,000. The money raised through this campaign will cover all food, logistics and report generating needed to carry out a structured, year-long program to help alleviate the burden of poverty of selected school children (and their families) in Sabah. As with our other programs on the Peninsula, we will work with the teachers from recipient schools to distribute aid and monitor the attendance of recipients to gauge the effectiveness of the program.

DURATION OF PROJECT: JAN 2020 THROUGH DEC 2020

TARGET RECIPIENTS: 5 DESERVING SCHOOL CHILDREN’S FAMILIES
