World Food Programme: Donate ฿99 to Provide School Meals for Girls in Asia for 2 Weeks

coupon from UN World Food Programme 2 Bangkok
Highlights
  • Poverty and tradition often exclude girls from schooling; more than 36 million primary school-aged girls around the world don't attend school
  • Combatting hunger among children helps improve school performance, closes the gender gap in schools and helps empower girls by increasing their chances to have a brighter future
  • One nutritious meal a day promotes regular attendance, as a poor family has one less meal per day to provide for their children, and also offsets the cost of education
  • ฿99 is enough to provide school meals for girls in Asia for 2 Weeks

The fable of a lotus girl

In Bhutan, there are a group of children living all by themselves in temporary shelters. These children have been left to take care of themselves. A little girl named Pelmo, which means lotus, lives with three other girls and two boys in the same hut. Pelmo, aged 12 is a 5th grader in north western Bhutan. Her parents divorced early in her life. Her mother has since remarried and bore two siblings. Pelmo spent most of her time with her grandfather, or alone.

Pelmo wakes up at 6.00 am in the morning to fix her school lunch and breakfast for herself and the other children. She hardly has time to study in the morning with the burden of domestic chores. Her classes end at 3.30 pm and it takes her 30 minutes to reach her home.  She makes dinner while trying to finish her homework. At 6:30 pm, it gets very dark in Bhutan, and they have to prepare to sleep in the absence of electricity. In addition, she has to fetch water for cooking and bathing. On weekends they have to walk to the village to get rations of food or collect firewood for cooking. Sometimes, their parents come to help them collect the firewood.

WFP along with Bhutan’s Ministry of Education have decided to support 40 of these children with the WFP school meals programme, where they will receive breakfast and lunch at school as an incentive to stay in school and to give them a healthy and nutritious start to life.  Pelmo would like to be a teacher when she grows up. Let’s help her realize her dream. “
