SCHOOL FAMINE

We encourage schools to organise School Famine for students to gain a deeper understanding of the impacts of poverty. Through the hunger experience and simulation activity, students will experience the challenges faced by poor children. We hope that this can be a life-changing experience for students and they will one day become leaders in creating a hunger-free world!
