As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We empower communities to change their world by supporting school lunch programs in Tanzania and inspiring service in all children.
Founded in 2011, The Lunch Project (TLP) is a Charlotte-based 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering communities by supporting school lunch programs in Tanzania, teaching empathy education and inspiring service in all children.
Internationally, this organization provides students with the fuel to learn while stimulating economies through locally-sources goods and services. Stateside, the goal is global empathy education that provides a highly-visual demonstration of the impact individual actions can make around the world.
TLP is now enabling a community-led, locally sourced lunch program 5 days a week to over 1800 primary school students at two public primary schools in Tanzania, and still growing.
What began as a simple idea has captured the hearts and minds of many, both in the Charlotte region and abroad.
