Hope is the Spark that Changes Lives

family meal: ugali, chapatis, or rice along with vegetables; maybe a meat or fish stew if they can afford it.

fresh fruits: bananas, mangoes, papayas, pineapples, etc.

festive meal: nyama choma  (roast meat, or barbecue)

common snacks: samosas, mandazis, peanuts, piece of roasted corn


Lesson Plan Ideas for Kenyan Food


  1. Print out the recipe for ugali and mandazis. Read to the students what is in it and how it is made.
  2. Have students try the different fruits (especially mango and papaya). Take a vote of their favorite Kenyan fruit (create a bar graph of the results).
  3. Make one or more of the foods and allow each student to taste it.
    • If you are able to make it together as a class, this is a great math connection as well.
    • Send home a request for parents to volunteer to make some of these foods.
