Mary's Meals: a simple solution to world hunger
Meal a day. Mary’s Meals is a global movement supported by people from many walks of life and different backgrounds. They have a simple but life-changing aim –to provide a nutritious daily meal, in a place of education, for children in the world’s poorest communities. Mary’s Meals has served more than one billion meals to impoverished children around the world. The billionth meal was served in Noida, India, in 2017. Where Mary’s Meals is active, there is a rise in rates of enrolment, attendance and academic performance. It’s a cause we believe in 100% and are proud to support.
Ecologi: Tree planting
Plant the change. Keeping in line with our beliefs, we have also taken the initiative in collaborating with Ecologi. They plant trees and fund climate crisis solutions, all for the betterment of the environment. In collaboration with Ecologi, we at Holland Rose are working on a carbon offset project at the moment. The project aims to reduce carbon emissions via carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. As you can see, we leave no opportunity to work towards fulfilling our ultimate goal: the preservation of tomorrow. It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. They are also crucial to preventing ecological collapse. As trees grow, they absorb and store the carbon dioxide emissions that are driving global heating. New research estimates that a worldwide planting program could remove two-thirds of all the emissions from human activities that remain in the atmosphere today, a figure the scientists describe as “mind-blowing”.
