Egg has been added to the lunch menu
Sujata Academy reopened after almost two years. Because the students looked very thin, staff asked them what they had for breakfast. They said that they had rice and salt.
During the monsoon season, vegetables and dal (beans) are expensive. That is why the children only had rice and salt for breakfast. When staff told this story to the vice-principal, Indrajit ji, she said,
“Sister, some children come to school without any breakfast.”
The school provides a full plate of vegetables, dal, and rice to all the students for lunch. However, the younger students looked too frail, so the school decided to provide eggs to the first and second graders for a month.
Since the first and second graders have no prior school experience, getting an egg every day will motivate them not to miss school. The children are very happy to get their daily egg.
Since the older students also wanted eggs, the school decided to give eggs daily to all the students of Sujata Academy. This was made possible by the generous donations of JTS supporters, and we greatly appreciate it.
