This data collection involved interacting with many students, which is always a pleasure! Robin, the our fall intern was the representative traveling from school to school, measuring the height and weight of students from each grade and evaluating the personal hygiene habits among students. The children really enjoyed being a part of the process, and meeting more of our field staff!
Robin really appreciated the chance to see the schools and meet students. She says, “Going out to the field is a good reminder to all of us here at Pueblo a Pueblo what (and who) we are working so hard for!”
The School Health and Nutrition program effectively reduces the immediate hunger of school-aged children by giving them hot, nutritious meals. Through the provision of these healthy meals, the School Health and Nutrition program also provides an additional incentive for parents to send their children to school.
Full, happy children are more able to concentrate and participate in class, which makes for better students! They are also better able to fight of illnesses, form friendships, and – be kids!
Thank you to all the Pueblo a Pueblo supporters for helping the students at our partner schools grow and thrive!
