President Ruto’s School Meals Revolution

President William Ruto’s visionary leadership has sparked a transformative revolution in Kenya’s School Meals Programme, illuminating a path toward enhancing education and children’s well-being.

Under President Ruto’s guidance, the School Meals Programme has seen substantial improvements, exemplified by remarkable increases in school enrollment and retention. The provision of milk alone led to a notable 50.72% surge in lower primary school enrollment, while primary school retention increased significantly to 52.2%.

In regions like Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) and informal settlements, the program substantially increased school attendance, especially among children facing hunger and malnutrition.

To combat malnutrition more effectively, President Ruto’s administration has set ambitious goals. These include eradicating malnutrition for 1.5 million children under five by 2027, a goal backed by a budget increase to USD 30 million, benefiting four million students in the current fiscal year.

The government is fostering partnerships with all 47 Kenyan counties to reach eight million students, with plans to extend the program to ten million children by 2030. This collective effort underscores Kenya’s determination to transform the lives of its young generation.

Moreover, President Ruto’s vision includes promoting Climate Smart Agriculture, striving to encourage over 70% of smallholders to adopt this approach by 2030, facilitating sustainable food systems and addressing climate change.

Recognizing the critical role of collaboration, the government is actively engaging with stakeholders, international organizations, and farmers. Through strategic planning and capacity-building, the School Meals Programme is poised for enduring success.

The School Meals Programme, under President William Ruto’s leadership, symbolizes Kenya’s unwavering commitment to the well-being and education of its children. It serves as a powerful proof to the nation’s dedication to nurturing the future generation and creating a brighter, prosperous future.
