Fanny looks neat and ready to learn in her new class. She passed her 2019/2020 promotional class exams from class four to class five. She was ranked 29th out of 55 in her class with an average score of 63.3 percent. During a school assessment in October 2020 her class teacher, Mr. Joseph Kamara, said “Fanny is energetic now and happy. She participates in extracurricular activities and has potentials of making better grades”. I asked Fanny about her new energy and she said “My grandmother uses the SLWT food supply to prepare breakfast and lunch for me. I don’t go to school hungry anymore and also feel confident in class now because I am neat and have all my school materials’’.

  • exercise books

  • pens, pencil, ruler
  • school bag,
  • shoes,
