Race Against Hunger 2011




"The Race Against Hunger is a service learning campaign that unites different cities from all over the world in the fight against global hunger and malnutrition. 

Tapping into the great potential of youth to become powerful agents of change, the Race aims to educate young too about the causes of global and domestic hunger and inspire them to be a part of the solution."




"End Hunger: Walk the World" is an annual event to raise money and awareness for WFP’s efforts to fight child hunger and malnutrition."


 

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

     

   



Education:

During the next week, educators can still  involve subject-based learning activities to educate students about the issues around global hunger. Foster a sense of community and global citizenship among students.

Some activities might be designed to meet curricula requirements so that educators can easily implement them in the classroom.
  • Enrich your curriculum by incorporating global issues into classroom activities: slogans, flyers, pins, lyrics writen by students based on music songs they love to hear.
  • Join the fight against hunger by spreading awareness in your school and community (parents, familiars, friends)
  • Help children around the world who suffer from hunger and malnutrition.

After the educational component, students will have the opportunity to become actively involved in the fight against hunger by participating in a “fun-run” event.

The Race can take place on school grounds (primary school), in a local park (elementary and secondary schools), depending on what works best for your school. 
The program designed might be tailored to fit the needs of each school.

In Portugal, the "Race Against Hunger" will take place in Lisbon and Porto, tomorrow, May 22, 2011, at 10:00 (Portuguese time).



Ferrer Correia School (Portugal)

Portuguese educators had the opportunity to involve the Portuguese students in different activities. And a lot of schools organized fun-runs against hunger.

In other cities of the world the "Race Against Hunger" have different days. So, go on the site End Hunger World Race to join a Walk in your neighborhood or to create a Walk.

Kids and educators might join familiar, friends to participate in the great race after the "fun-run" in the school or the park.


Join Walk the World on Facebook or on Twitter with hashtag @Walk_the_World.



I know of no great men except those who have rendered great service to the human race.
