We inform the public that providing girls secondary schooling can end the cycle of hunger.
We raise funds to support nonprofit organizations that educate girls in developing countries.
My name is Carolyn T. Pascal, and I am a voice for the voiceless.
When I was twelve years old, I realized that the first step in achieving peace is to ensure that all people’s basic needs are met. The solution seemed simple: some people have too much food, while others have too little. All we have to do is provide food to the those who do not have it and the problem is solved, thought my 12-year-old self. As I matured over the next three years, I learned that the solution to the problem of hunger varies based on its underlying cause. In developing nations, providing secondary schooling to girls is more effective in preventing hunger than is providing food directly.
To address the issue of hunger in my community and abroad, I have designed a three-pronged approach. First, I host monthly community outreach events informing my neighbors about hunger in our community and requesting donations to our local food bank. In this community, the primary cause for hunger is not lack of secondary education. In this community, the food bank saves lives, enabling people to rehabilitate and get back on their feet. Second, I created and posted a YouTube video presentation explaining the problem of hunger across the globe, its underlying causes, and how educating girls can defeat hunger in developing nations. Third, I have founded a nonprofit, called Educate Girls to Eradicate Hunger, Inc., to inform the world that educating girls can end hunger and to raise funds to provide education to impoverished girls in developing nations.
My name is Carolyn T. Pascal. I intend to make the world a better place and I do not give up.
