** About donation from Japan
In fact, we launched a crowd funding in March 2022, and we successfully raised 2,185,500yen (Approx. 16,000 USD) from Japanese people. So our donation worth 9,000ksh for this month was from theim.
To learn more about the crowd funding project, kindly see the details from the link below;
School Meal Donation Project  (Japanese only)

We are planning to use the donation from Japan over a few years combining with Alphajiri customers' donation. (The donation usage plans will slightly vary depending on the currency exchange rates and how much we raise from other sources including Alphajiri customers. We will keep our plans posted)

Our next goal is to increase food variety for the 6 schools above, and also to expand the number of recipient schools in Korogocho slum.

Regarding food variety, because of Alphajiri farmers' request for more maize market and demand of maize flour from the schools, we will add maize flour as a donation item. Because maize is one of the most important crops for Western smallholder farmers who eat ugali almost every meal, having stable market for their extra maize is crucial.

Though schools in Nairobi serve more rice than ugali to students, one of the reasons is because maize flour is not as available as rice in Nairobi markets. As long as maize flour is donated, they will be very happy to consume more.

We are now searching for more schools in Korogocho that need the same support. If you have any recommendation, kindly let us know. We will keep updating the new schools we start to donate to!
