NO

TCC and young activist members from St Joseph's Catholic & Anglican School have launched their #NoHungryLearners campaign that seeks to alleviate the burden of school meal debt.

HUNGRY

Article 27 of the UNCRC says that children and young people should be able to live in a way that helps them reach their full physical, mental, spiritual, moral, and social potential. For this to happen, they should have access to adequate food and housing. 

LEARNERS

In line with the UNCRC rights as stated, we are campaigning to stop this happening and to ensure all children are fed at school - and to eradicate the stigma that such situations present.
