This latest post is about an excellent initiative ran by the World Food Programme (you can check out there website below). Their initiative is a website called Free Rice. It is an educational website that poses short questions about a range of different topics in a multiple choice format. It cover topics such as Multiplication and basic maths, vocabulary, grammar, science, humanities and much more.
The best thing about Free Rice is that for every question you answer correctly Free Rice.com will donate ten grains of rice to the World Food Programme. The World Food Programme provides food to the millions of people on Earth who face hunger on daily basis and are at risk of starvation. It is sad that there are still people living like this but intiatives like the World Food Programme and websites like Free Rice are committed to doing what they can to help. We think it is awesome that you can not only learn using the interent but also donate rice to the people that need it the most.
We now have a group created in Free Rice so that you can save your totals of Free Rice so that you can see how much rice you can donate over the year. If you would like to join our Free Rice Group head to free rice.com and sign up for an account (you can sign up using your @bourchierps.vic.edu.au email address (google apps account) and then click on ‘groups’ on the top and search for ‘SGD’ once you find our class join it and start donating!
You can also donate rice by answering questions without having an account but it won’t be able to save your totals, Have fun with it and feel good about contributing to a great progam!
