#BlogToFeedAChild – Backpacks full of Hope.


Hunger hurts 1 out of every 10 children. The biggest reason children are hungry around the world, is poverty and unemployment. Unemployment mean families can’t afford enough food and poverty means children do not have access to clean water or education.

Imagine you are 8 years old and your mom tells you that we have nothing more to eat.

You’d wonder what wrong have you done to sleep hungry.

You’d wonder if the water you drink to sleep can fight the rumbling tummy.

What can we do to make sure no child is hungry. ?? !!

This was a recent incident that happened in my office during our lunch hour. So we bunch of four awesome friends were waiting for the Chappati (or Flat Bread) to be served. While all of us were waiting to receive our share of Roti, one of our friend outstretched his hand.

“This is for you,” he said.
In his hand were four quarters.

This was an overwhelming moment for all of us, and sooner did it struck my mind. We could volunteer to share our share of lunch so that this could reach the school that had mid-day meal scheme. Every quarter from our share of lunch could bring a roti (of course with different sized quarter) and they could be fed. With filled stomach, hunger for education would bring the best in everyone.

Each day of the month, we all could deliver lunch boxes loaded with healthy snacks to every kids in need all over. For some of those kids, the food may be is the only brand-new things they receive all year.

I am going to #BlogToFeedAChild with Akshaya Patra and BlogAdda.

When you feed a child, you feed their future. You make the world a better place for them.
