Back in July, when BBC World Class launched a new video featuring the WFP school meals programme in Nepal, they hosted a live blog to bring together students from around the world for a vibrant discussion on what inspires them. Students from the school in Nepal featured in the video joined students who also receive WFP meals at Makina Self-Help Primary School in Nairobi, Kenya – along with students from the UK, Ukraine, India, Nepal, and South Africa to discuss how good nutrition helps them achieve their dreams.
Mix together a new online game, the world’s largest humanitarian organization, and a community helping provide school meals to hungry kids around the world and what do you get? A recipe for a fun way to get involved in the fight against hunger that calls for one missing ingredient: your creativity.
What does it mean to be a humanitarian? This World Humanitarian Day, organizations and celebrities alike will encourage you to celebrate the people in your community working to improve the lives of others. We wanted to introduce you to two teenage humanitarians in the seventh grade who set out to end hunger. They showed us that being a humanitarian has nothing to do with how old you are. It’s about using your voice to inspire others. Meet Savannah and Michaela.
Meet Erica Stålblad. She’s a student at Helenholms School in Malmö, Sweden who decided to help the World Food Programme make a difference in the lives of hungry people worldwide. She not only convinced her classmates to join her: she also inspired Swedish musician Tingsek to help her turn up the volume on how together we can solve hunger.
