Ruff’s Kitchens is a charity set up to feed vulnerable children at school in Zimbabwe. It currently feeds over 10,000 children every day.
Zimbabwe is a country with very little to offer. With over 90% unemployment and no real government infrastructure, the people live very poor lives.
Children walk miles to school each day on empty stomachs. There is no food provided at school and no guarantee of a meal when they get home. These children are the future of Zimbabwe and the only hope of changing the country for the better. This is the reason Ruff's Kitchens was born.
The charity was launched in April 2012 and is run by the Ruff family. To date the charity has set up 7 kitchens in schools across the country. Each child within these schools receives a nutritious, porridge based meal packed with vitamins, which the children love. As a result of this, the schools in which Ruff's Kitchens are operating have seen a rise in attendance and are reporting that the children are learning and developing more. This is all down to one simple meal each day.
Ruff's Kitchens is making a huge difference to many lives, schools and communities in Zimbabwe. Due to the positive impact already made by the charity, there are plans to open more kitchens and by 2018 the aim is to be feeding over 20,000 children each day across 30 schools!
