Free Rice

I came across a wonderful non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program, called Free Rice. This website has two goals:


1. Provide education to everyone for free.

2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.


Here’s how it works. It offers free quizzes on various subjects like Art, Chemistry, English Grammar and Vocabulary, Geography, Language Learning and Math. If you get the answer right, you get a harder question. If you get it wrong, you get an easier question. For each correct answer that you give, it donates 10 grains of rice to help end hunger through the UN World Food Program. The more correct answers you give, the more rice is donated to the hungry. The program started in 2007 and so far 68 billion grains of rice have been donated. Many corporates across the world sponsor this program.


So what are we waiting for? Here’s the link to Free Rice:

Go ahead and improve your knowledge and help a great humanitarian cause. It’s like killing one bird with two arrows. Or is it two birds with one arrow? Anyway, it doesn’t matter because we shouldn’t be killing the birds in the first place.
