Milk=better health for HIV-positive students

14 July 2021

Schoolchildren in Tanzania's Southern Highlands get regular helpings of milk as part of a new Heifer International project.

Students at Southern Highlands are receiving regular servings of milk as part of Heifer International's project, and parents and teachers marvel at the instantaneous boost to health, concentration, energy and attendance. Matrida Peter, a math teacher who oversees the School Milk Program at Nyumbanitu Primary, said all of her students gained weight and vigor, but her HIV-positive students show the most improvement. "Their skin was dull and dry, but now their skin is shining."
