Last Friday, the department delivered food assistance its beneficiaries. This was in the form of one hundred bags of 50kg of rice to hundred (100) beneficiaries. The selected beneficiaries are the vulnerable among the group currently undergoing skills training.
The purpose of this food assistance was to alleviate short term hunger. Increasing retention in training centers and in schools is also part of the plan. It will also reduce the pressure beneficiaries experience to shoulder expenses on food and smoothen learning and training. All the beneficiaries expressed deep gratitude to Don Bosco for this assistance.
