The Element of Surprise: Ipsos Foundation provides funding to feed 1 155 hungry children

Posted on November 3rd, 2017 by Charles Grey

  • Gateway Primary – 770 learners
  • Abedare Primary – 385 learners
  • The reason that the Ipsos Foundation selected these schools, is due to the fact that the township of Delft is an extremely poor and poverty stricken area in the Western Cape, that is plagued with domestic violence and drug abuse. Gillian Drewett said “As a team of researchers who spend most of our day in focused concentration, thinking and learning, we are fully aware of the evidence that shows concentration and the ability to learn are negatively impacted when a learner is hungry. With this grant from the Ipsos Foundation and the work of the PFSA, we at Ipsos Laboratories have been empowered to make a difference in the lives of these learners with two meals a day throughout an entire school year. What a privilege!” She went on to say, “The statement ‘You cannot teach a hungry child’ sums up the inspiring work done by the PSFA. For the Ipsos Foundation and Ipsos Laboratories more specifically; to be able to make a small but tangible difference in this way is hugely humbling for all of us at Ipsos Laboratories”. We recently took Gillian and Kathrine to visit Gateway and Abedare Primary Schools where they had the opportunity to experience our feeding programme in action, serve meals and to interact with the children. A big thank you to the Ipsos Foundation – we really appreciate your support!
