Eat So They Can
The Project of the Month is an initiative which puts one of our projects in the spotlight for a month to help raise awareness and funds for a specific cause. For October and November, we are promoting our Annual Fundraising Campaign, Eat So They Can .
There are 925 million undernourished people in the world today. That means one in seven people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life. The Eat So They Can campaign is all about providing citizens around the world - people just like you - with an inspiring way to bring an end to global hunger.
Eat So They Can is an initiative of the Global Volunteer Network and the GVN Foundation. The concept is simple - by hosting a dinner party, you can help end hunger and malnutrition around the world! So join our Global Dinner Party by signing up as a host. The funds you raise will go towards supporting GVN Foundation's nutrition programs in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Alternatively, if you donít have time to organize a dinner party, you can donate now below.
We believe all our small actions can combine in a powerful way to end hunger and empower communities. So join us in ending hunger - one dinner party at a time!
