EVO Payments supports the international partnership of Mastercard® and the World Food Programme
Mastercard® and the World Food Programme (WFP) of the United Nations have developed a special initiative to which EVO Payments is now also committed.
1 Mastercard® payment = 1 school meal
For every Mastercard® payment made in participating bakeries by 31 December 2019, a school meal will be donated to a vulnerable child. In this way, customers contribute to breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty in the world with their purchases. Free, daily school meals help motivate families in developing countries to send their children to school regularly. In some countries, children do not go to school, but instead work at home or in the fields to support their household. For them, a daily meal at school would mean better nutrition and health, as well as better opportunities for a good education - the first step towards breaking the poverty cycle.
About the World Food Programme
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organisation in the fight against hunger worldwide. It reaches nearly 90 million people each year in over 80 countries and provides school meals to over 18 million students. The children receive healthy food on a regular basis and can concentrate better. Girls are often the target group of the school meal programme, as it is one of very few ways that they have the chance of a proper education.
