The lunches for kids program, is one of the main activities managed by Drab Foundation. Our main motivation is to help the families, whose financial situation is not very good and does not enable them to even afford lunches for their children at school. Regarding to the fact that this situation is not getting better, it is rather getting worse looking at our research, we would like to inform about this problem.
We want and are helping the students who have a difficult financial situation and are properly fulfilling their school responsibilities. The priority of this program is to motivate students towards better performance and higher school attendance. By this we would like to improve the education in Czech Republic nationwide.
The help is provided through schools in a way that ensures that lunches will get to the students who actually desperately need them and the help is not misused. The submission to the program has to be done by the school, but parents can point out that this program exists and ask for cooperation with us.
You can support the program anytime by a financial gift in our payment system here: Payment system
Drab Foundation has decided to pay 25.000 lunches for students in the first wave, who are not responsible for their financial situation, have the will to educate themselves and develop their personality, in the first phase. Most of the time children, whose parents are trying to secure basic needs, but were not so fortunate to be able to finance it, sign up for the program. We also support orphans, whose parents died in a car accident. We even have a case, when an older sibling took care of such child and had to sacrifice their studies in order to feed the family.
Finally there are also single mothers. There are around 30% of divorced people from which 60% of fathers do not pay the compulsory alimony. Woman, who lost her home and has to quickly find new one for her and her three children, has a difficult situation and we are trying to change that.
Drab Foundation has been providing this program since 2015 and since then we payed for more then 400 000 lunches for students, who are not responsible for their financial situation, have the will to educate themselves and develop their personality, in the first phase.
