Table for Two

Every now and again, surfing through the websites of the NGOworld, I come across one that has both a genuine spirit of goodwill and a unique idea. “Table for Two” is one of my recent picks. 

“Table for Two” please, with one chair in the US and another one in Rwanda. This is an organization which aims to fix the nutrition imbalance in our world by simultaneously addressing issues of obesity in developed countries and of malnutrition in the developing world. 

TFT partners with restaurants, corporate cafeterias, universities and other food establishments to serve healthy, nutritionally balanced TFT-branded meals as part of their menu. A 25 cent charge is added to the price of their meals which goes to fund School Meal Programmes in countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, and Ethiopia. These meals not only  provide children with much-needed calories and nutrition, but they also provide an incentive for parents to send their children to school, thus helping to achieve higher school participation rates.
