The richly-talented student choral community
of Princeton, New Jersey has donated this music to benefit some of the
worldís neediest children via the World Food Program (WFP), the United
Nationsí frontline agency in the fight against global hunger. The bulk
of WFPís operations are focused in sub-Saharan Africa.
from this effort will go directly to the WFPís School Feeding program,
one that helps in two ways: it reduces hunger and improves education.
In poor countries, the burden often falls on children to help their
families make a living. This means they donít have the time, the economic
means, or the energy to attend school. For a child suffering from hunger,
going to school is less important than having enough food to eat. WFP
provides school meals to help offset the loss of the childís contribution
to the familyís livelihood.
incentive helps convince parents that they can afford to allow their
children to go and to stay in school. The promise of at least one nutritious
meal each day attracts children to school, boosts enrollment, promotes
regular attendance, and enhances student performance.
