WHY WE'RE HERE:
It's hard to believe, but child hunger is a reality in the Philippines (and so many other places). The UN reported 1 in 3 children in the Philippines are malnourished or have stunted growth. One of the most effective solutions are school feeding programs. School meals invests in education, provides the proper nutrition for children to develop their minds & bodies. We believe child hunger & hunger is a solvable problem when we come together to care.
MORE THAN A MEAL:
We've partnered with a local grassroots non-profit, Gawad Kalinga and their feeding program for public elementary schools. They have 12 kitchens around the Philippines, feeding up to 20,000 children lunch meals a day. For each Kaya Essentials product you purchase, you provide a school meal.
Research shows consistent school meals encourage parents to send their children to school. The performance of children greatly improves and for some, a school lunch is the only meal they receive all day. Mothers of the local communities appreciate the monetary savings it provides them but most of all, it saves them time.

COCONUT FOR CHANGE
Just like you, we believe in purchasing with a purpose. The Philippines is one of the world providers in the coconut industry, yet 60% of coconut farmers live below the poverty line. With coconut farming being a source of livelihood for 1/3 of Filipino farmers, we are compelled to alleviate this. We believe in fairtrade farming and want to see this shift in how we source our ingredients. Fairtrade certification ensures fair wage compensation as well as a fair working environment. We source our Cold Centrifuged Organic Virgin Coconut Oil from a fairtrade farm in Davao, Philippines.
