Milestone Objective

Minmahaw School Nutrition Plan Report

Minmahaw School was established to provide education to Burmese migrant students residing in Thailand. The school not only provides education to the refugee students but also 3 meals and snacks a day. The nutrition project organized and funded by Connecther was initiated to ensure students were getting nutritious food as a basic right. The students were also given a 3-week nutrition course to give them a better idea of which foods are good for their health. The meals that are given to the students comprise of breakfast, lunch, dinner and a light snack and are planned keeping their nutrition needs and tastes of the students in mind. In a regular day, their breakfast is noodles or fried rice with different sorts of vegetables to keep the meal both nutritious and tasty. Following the breakfast, their lunch and dinner gives just the required balance of carbohydrates, protein along with different types of curries and vegetables. Among all of these meal, Minmahaw school tries their best even with the limited budget to provide the students with snacks such as milk and fruits periodically through the day. Dah Dah, a student studying at Minmahaw school expresses how important this meal that the school provides is for her by saying. “If Minmahaw does not provide me with food, I will not be okay like now, because my parents can’t send money for me everything. I will have food twice a day or sometimes will be once a day”.

 

 

The students always provide us with vital feedback! Student Phoung when asked about the food said, “Minmahaw school’s food is the best food”. The efforts of providing tasty and nutritious food is appreciated well among other students too. Pointing out the nutritious values, Su Dar Lin, a student of the school mentions, “It is good for health, sometimes we eat vegetables and meat so that the food gives us Vitamin A and B”. However, with a limited budget Minmahaw school sometimes struggles to provide all needs at once and due to this situation, adjustments are made with the meal plan. Even with limited resources the school tries to provide a nutritious and tasty meal to the students. Naw East Dawna Moo, who has been studying at Minmahaw school for 2 years now says she wants to be a teacher in the future. The efforts of Minmahaw school is bringing hope and dreams to many other students like Naw who wants to achieve the high. Connecther is proud to be a partner with Minmahaw in providing nutrition and education to these beautiful children.
