#learn2feed - let us join hands in eradicating global hunger
In order to do something massive for the community, EBS capitalised its reach across various continents, and tied up with The World Food Program (WFP).
The World Food Program (WFP): In a world where enough food is produced to feed everyone, it is a fact that 811 million people still go to bed on an empty stomach each night. The World Food Program (WFP) delivers food and other assistance to people in need in more than 80 countries around the world. Each day, WFP has 5,000 trucks, 20 ships and 70 planes on the move.
Still, humanitarian needs are growing much faster than available funding. A record number of emergencies, many fuelled by conflict and the effects of climate change, have stretched WFP’s resources to a breaking point. Now, with the ‘ShareTheMeal’ concept, The World Food Program is bringing about a change in the lives of the deprived. A tap on its app via your phone is all that’s needed to make a change.
At Eaton Business School, we are taking a small step towards this gigantic target to provide 1,000,000 meals to children in need around the world. For every learner enrolling for a programme at Eaton Business School, we contribute up to 100 meals on their behalf to the under-privileged children. Eaton believes in promoting empathy rather than sympathy to make a difference in people’s lives, even if it may be an iota to begin with.
