Help hungry children learn by giving them the fuel they need to start the day.
In poverty-battered Mauritania, thousands of children walk several miles to school every day. Their parents are too poor to give them anything for breakfast and, after an exhausting walk, children arrive at the classroom tired and hungry. With empty stomachs they are not able to focus and cannot absorb what their teacher is saying.
A simple breakfast composed of 25g of corn-soya blend and 10g of sugar will provide pupils with an improved diet and help them concentrate in the classroom. It will also motivate parents to send children, especially girls, to school instead of making them work around the household.
By getting more children into the classroom, the World Food Program will be able not only to fight hunger in Mauritania, but also to offer thousands of children the key to a better future through education.
This Gift That Gives More™ provides in-school breakfast to two hungry children for nine months, and helps the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) fight hunger in the most impoverished regions of Mauritania and around the world.
Friends of WFP is a U.S.-based, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that focuses on building support in the United States for the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) and other hunger relief operations. Friends of WFP unites organizations and individuals committed to solving world hunger. Its education, advocacy and fundraising efforts in the United States support WFP's life-saving global food assistance and development programs.
