SAT prep in 2014 with FreeRice online game

See also

The SAT Tests for high school students will be given in January and March of 2014. A great way for students to practice would be using the online game FreeRice.

FreeRice has a section dedicated to SAT Prep. When you play FreeRice every answer you get right means 10 grains of rice donated to the UN World Food Programme, the largest hunger relief agency. The rice is paid for by advertisers on the site.

With FreeRice you can make the SAT have a service element. FreeRice is currently helping the World Food Programme (WFP) provide school meals in Niger. Located in the Sahel region of Africa, Niger has suffered through poverty, drought, food shortages and a refugee crisis from neighboring Mali.

According to WFP, "The school feeding programme successfully encourages enrollment and attendance of children, and reduces drop-out rates in primary schools in structurally vulnerable areas of Niger by providing cooked meals."

WFP and UNICEF are also working together to expand school feeding in other parts of Niger. In order to do so, they need the support of the international community. By playing FreeRice you can help them.

In Niger, "Only 56 percent of children finish primary school; in rural areas the figure is lower. Drop-out rates increase as households migrate, and boys often assist with cattle and crops and girls work in the home rather than going to school."

The attendance rate for schools with a feeding program is 93%, with dropout rate of 2%, against 8% for schools with no meal program.

You can support this school feeding and other WFP programs by playing FreeRice.
