If you click on the logo above, you will be taken to the Free Rice vocabulary game (warning: highly addictive). For every word you get right, they will donate 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food program.
Free Rice is a sister site to Poverty.com, another ste worth a visit. The names and faces of people they show as recent deaths are not real, but it does bring home the numbers of people dying from AIDS, malaria, hunger and so on.
Although rice donation is a necessity for overcoming the immediate need to alleviate hunger, the ultimate aim has to be to enable local farmers to provide for the needs of their own communities, which is the purpose of the Africa Rice Centre in developing New Rice for Africa.
