Girls Learn International will host a Hunger Banquet as its annual advocacy project on May 31 at 6:30 p.m.

GLI believes that global education for young women can help prevent poverty and hope to inform the community about these issues by hosting this banquet, an interactive event where participants will be randomly assigned an income group (lower, middle, or upper) and will receive a meal accordingly. Afterwards, there will be a speaker who will discuss the link between the issues of poverty and education.

The banquet will take place in the cafeteria. Each ticket costs $10 per person. Children ages five and below who eat for free. Those interested in attending should contact the GLI team at slhsgirlslearn@gmail.com for more information, and click here to order tickets .

“I’m really excited for the event because it’s our opportunity to let everyone know how important education is to girls and how important it is to value our own education,” GLI advisor Kate Kahn said. “We’ve been lucky that we were born in a country where everyone gets to go to school and we have the supplies to do so and how it’s just people in other parts of the world who just didn’t have the same fortune of birth to be born where we’re born.”
