Project Nourish is dedicated to helping children receive an education. One of the students that we are fortunate to be helping is eleven year old Falone Louis Jacqold. She will be in the fourth grade this year. According to her teacher, Falone used to be weak and sickly and she was regularly absent from school. When she was present, she would often fall asleep in class.
Falone’s mother single-handedly takes care of her. She performs all of the household chores and looks for money to provide for her family. But her mother does not have a regular income. When she is able, she sells local fruits. According to Falone’s mother, the biggest problem she has is figuring out how to provide food for her family.
Falone’s teacher said that because of the meals that she receives in school, the child has changed. She is now cheerful and active in class. There is no sign of tiredness or frailty. She is always smiling and has more confidence. Her teacher also said that she likes to sing and she always shows off her talent!
Falone’s mom sends her thanks to those who are helping her child. She says, “Thank you for everything you do for me. God bless you.”
