Mary’s MealsPosted: January 24, 2014
One of the things that I’ve often seen in my travels for NGOs in the developing world is children not being able to attend the local schools because the family can’t provide food for the child during the school day. Many people in the industrialized nations don’t realize that this is a major factor in the lack of education in impoverished communities. Mary’s Meals provides food on the school premises in areas where hunger prevents children from getting an education. As part of the IB tenet of global citizenship, ISBerne students and faculty are involved in a variety of global service projects. As someone who has seen poverty and the lack of access to basic education up close and on an international scale, I applaud the many efforts at ISBerne to better the human condition.
