870 Ones

“I never look at the masses as my responsibility. I look at the individual. I can love only one person at a time. I can feed only one person at a time. Just one, one, one."   - Mother Teresa

These sweet faces greeted me today as an American group and I visited the school where the feeding program takes place. Each child greeted us with a smile and a big bowl of food. It was lunchtime and each student was enjoying their hot and healthy lunch, just like they do everyday. 870 kids eat everyday because you said yes. 

More are coming! The headmaster told me that the school will be growing next year and there will be over 1,100 students to feed. Families are hearing that at this school children get a hot meal everyday and are enrolling their children. Students that have never been to school come now because they can eat, this is huge, this is world changing. All because you said yes to one! One bag, one meal. It all starts with one!
