Don Bosco School participated in the Students Rebuild Hunger Challenge, an initiative to raise funds for charities that are feeding the poor and needy. An estimated 821 million people – one person in nine – suffer from hunger worldwide. The Covid Pandemic has compounded the problem. Students Rebuild Hunger Challenge encouraged students worldwide to participate in a fundraiser where for every creatively done recipe sent in the Bezos Family Foundation donated $ 6 to charity organizations like UNICEF, Mary’s Meals, Save The Children and No Kid Hungry. The aim of this project was also to create awareness among students about the global problem of hunger and malnutrition.
We are happy to announce that our school raised $1254 (Rs. 90,000 approx) with 156 students contributing 297 recipes for the Students Rebuild Hunger Challenge. In total, $2.3 million dollars was generated by the Foundation to support over 230,000 children globally. The highest contributors in our school were: Elina Sah (9 L) followed by Joshitha Gangam (9 L) and Tanvi Sah (6 R). Thank you very much to our students, teachers and parents who contributed and Rev. Fr. Chinnappa for encouraging and supporting this social service endeavour. Please see our Team Page: https://www.
