Make 2013 the year that you actively do something to help change hunger! Hunger Response International has lots of opportunities to get involved through the Rice Raiser Campaign and the Have-A-Rice-Day Movement. Plus there are new initiatives coming soon that we are excited to share with you.
Select one of the 2013 four global projects and set yourself a goal to raise support for the people in that country and collect food for your local food bank at the same time. Here's some ideas:
You can be the change you want to see in hungry people's lives here at home in your own community or around the world in:
India - Slum School Lunches India - help 60 children get nutrition and an education through school lunches.
Laos: Rice Gives Life! Laos -help poor families become more food secure through developing irrigated rice paddies. (a $4 - $1 CIDA-matched project)
Rwanda: Piggy Power! Rwanda - Pigs can be power agents of change to families struggling for food in Rwanda.
Sierra Leone: Learning + Doing = Food! Sierra Leone - through school gardens, children can be fed nutritious food while learning about agriculture methods and nutrition. Mother's clubs are also taught through these gardens.
Something you can do right now is to share this with your friends and if you haven't already done so, like our facebook page: www.facebook.com/HungerResponse
Please contact us and let us know how we can help you be the change you want to see for hungry people in our world!
