We've Donated Over 100,000 Meals to Children in Nepalposted on
Thanks to our customers’ support earlier this year we achieved a record milestone in assisting Pod Volunteer to deliver over 100,000 meals to school children in Nepal.
Since 2016 the Outdoor 365 group, of which Buck Store is a part, have been making monthly donations. Read our Project Pod update blog to learn more about the Nepal project.
Our New Venture
With the Nepal programme unfortunately coming to an end, we are now supporting the Community Education project in Northern Peru. Our monthly donations will allow the volunteer team to provide around 10,000 meals each year for the children who need it most.
The Community Education project and school was established in 2006 and Pod Volunteer have been supporting them since 2013. The project aims to help educate young children deemed ‘at risk’ of dropping out of the public school system due to poverty or lack of family support.
Working in partnership with local Peruvian charity Seeds of Hope, they support children’s education and health in the city of Huarez. The project is a supportive environment in which the children obtain help and encouragement with their homework as well as access to the school resources they need. By providing the children with a safe place to come after school, they act as a free care service for children who may otherwise spend the afternoon at home alone.
Our donations help provide a guaranteed, nutritious meal during the day which is desperately needed as sadly 1 in 4 children in the region suffer from malnutrition.
