Around 1.3 billion children and youth around the world are affected by school and university closures due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
As soon as schools closed in Zambia, EAC heard from its partner ZOCS. With EAC support, the Zambia Open Community Schools will reach 175,000 OOSC. One of the planned activities on this project was a school feeding programme. Rather than the children going hungry and the food going to waste, ZOCS and EAC agreed that the food be delivered safely to their homes.
