Your Campus Connection
This project is organized in cooperation with a community kitchen where kids have healthy meals every day. The main idea is to provide training to the families on healthy eating. In the kitchen, the children are not only fed but they also enjoy activities that contribute to their personal and collective development such as theatre, music, art and games.
