OUR HISTORY

Kos Vir Skole NPC (KVS) was found in 1999, after several enquiries to local schools confirmed that many children came to school
hungry. They often did not hav something to eat the previous night. This means that they often have one meal a day while at
school, supplied by KVS.

The reason for this situation is the sociol economic circumstances of the family.

KVS started as a micro intervention with three (3) identified children at a local school.
