The Race Against Hunger is the most important school charity event in the calendar! Each year, more than 260,000 pupils from 1,300 schools take part in this project all over France and further afield, all in an effort to join us in our fight against hunger.
The aim: to give their all to help people suffering from hunger.
After an awareness-raising session on the causes of hunger, the pupils have to find sponsors and get as many people as possible involved in this active, dynamic, public-spirited project. On the big day, each pupil does their very best. It doesn’t matter whether they walk or run. The aim is to cover as many kilometres as possible to support our projects.
This year, the money raised by the pupils funded our projects and helped us to combat world hunger in places like Bangladesh.
All state and private schools in France and French schools abroad can organise and take part in a Race Against Hunger.
Action contre la Faim offers schools projects that fit in with the curriculum and suit all ages (from primary school to sixth form). We will support you throughout the project, and even afterwards!
This is a unique opportunity to bring together pupils, staff and families around a meaningful project.
Two key moments
The awareness-raising session – March–April 2024
A member of the Action contre la Faim team will come to your school to raise awareness of world hunger among your pupils. This year, they will find out about the day-to-day lives of families assisted by Action contre la Faim in Bangladesh through a film. After the session, the pupils will take control of the project by raising awareness among their loved ones and encouraging them to be a sponsor. Each promised donation will be multiplied by the number of laps the pupil does on the day of the race.
The race – 17 May 2024
The pupils will arrive at the start line of the Race Against Hunger organised by the school, do their very best and run as much as they can to support our projects. After the race, each pupil will multiply their promised donations by the number of kilometres they have run and will go back to their sponsors to ask for their donation. The money raised in this race will fund our programmes in Bangladesh and elsewhere.
