The Food Program
The most basic necessity is the most difficult to sustain. With the help of private donations and the annual support of the students and families from the Athenian School in California, RHO Appleseed has been able to provide lunches for the children of Bauleni for the past 6 years thanks to so much support. While this help is and has been invaluable, it is not enough to sustain or grow the program each month. Adequate nutrition is so vital and so lacking among children of these poor areas.
RHO Appleseed currently strives to serve over 250 free meals per week to all children who come to the center. Our meals are a nutritious variety of protein, starch and vegetables. $5000 per year will allow RHO Appleseed Community Center to fully fund the meal program and expand to 350 meals per week.
Please consider a full or partial donation.

To help support an RHO Appleseed program,
Connect to the World
The ability to provide online learning is invaluable, especially in a community of 25,000 people who have very little access to affordable internet.
$1500 per year will provide unlimited internet access in the evening and weekend hours. This will be invaluable to our older learners as the center is open to young adult and adult learners in the evening hours.
Please consider a full or partial donation to support Appleseed’s Connect to the World Program and bring internet access to this underserved population.
Appleseed Athletes Program
RHO Appleseed sponsors 7 soccer teams (5 boy and 2 girl teams) that we are continually trying to fund. Our goal is to establish and fund these teams on an annual basis. Currently, the teams play in occasional local tournaments as funding permits; however, they miss many opportunities and they are not able to practice regularly.
A minimum of $3,000 annually is needed to adequately fund this program. This will enable all 7 teams to have uniforms, regular practices with paid coaches and participate in local tournaments.
In the future we would like to expand to other team sports and fitness programs as well.
