Over 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, making it more difficult for them to learn. Currently, an additional 67 million school-age children do not attend school at all. Instead their families opt to have them work in the fields. Providing meals at school, as well as take-home rations, encourages parents to keep children in school. Global One Technology believes every child should have the best opportunity possible to get an education and has pledged to offer help.
Beginning in March 2012, for each product purchased through our website, Global One Technology Group will provide 10 meals for hungry schoolchildren throughout the world through its partnership with World Food Program USA, in support of the United Nations' World Food Program's School Meals Program.
66,720 meals provided as of 2/28/2013
World Food Program USA World Food Program USA (WFP USA) is a nonprofit organization that builds support in the United States to end global hunger. WFP USA engages individuals and organizations, shapes public policy and generates resources for the United Nations World Food Program and other hunger relief operations.
World Food Program The World Food Program (WFP) is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. They currently operate in 75 countries and work on the frontlines, providing emergency food aid in times of crisis as well as providing long-term sustainable solutions to hunger. In 2011 they aim to reach more than 90 million people with food assistance in more than 70 countries.
School Meals Programs School meals programs involve just what the name implies, providing meals in schools. The idea is simple; the impact is significant. Serving food at school not only helps alleviate hunger among the world's poorest children, it also helps get them into school, providing them with an important key to a better future - an education.
