Cross Life Nursery, Chilomoni
School Feeding Start Date: 4th June 2021
Note: Seibo first partnered with Cross Life Nursery in February 2021. At that time we could only provide take-home rations so children’s parents were provided with foodstuffs for home cooking. Happily things have returned to normal and we officially launched school feeding in June.
About Cross Life Nursery
Located in the Cross Life Church, central Chilomoni- the nursery at time of launch had 24 kids in total (17 boys & 7 girls) ranging in age from 1 to 5 years. Term (3 x months) fees to attend Cross Life are set at 55,000 kwacha. For a monthly fee of 10,000 kwacha per month the school can prepare a lunch. All children however will avail of the free breakfast meal served between 8am-9am.
The classroom itself is in good shape and there are tables, chairs and toys for children to play with. Despite having a large outdoor area it isn’t conducive for the children to use so kids are not allowed to play outside. There are 3 x teachers with MSCE & ECD certificates.For school feeding the nursery has a proper storage area for food and firewood. They also have tap water and a toilet.
While the pandemic has caused some nursery schools in our community to go out of business we are actively seeking to support new nursery schools to ensure more children get the opportunity to attend nursery school. By increasing the number of nursery partnerships Seibo avail of more free nursery places for the most needy children. We wish the team and staff & children at Cross Life Nursery great success!
