Sharewich Day posterDear Friends of EYCE’s Campaign to Overcome Poverty “Break the Chains!”

EACH year on the 16th and 17th of October the World Food Day and the International Day of Eradicating Poverty are observed. World Food Day was established by Food and Agriculture Organisation at its 20th General Conference in November 1945. It has since been observed every year in more than 150 countries, raising awareness of the issues behind poverty and hunger. The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty has been observed every year since 1993, when the United Nations General Assembly designated this day to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries.

THIS year, in the framework of the “Break the Chains!” campaign, EYCE wants to invite young people from all over Europe to prepare something special!

On the 16th and 17th of October 2014 take sandwiches to school/ college/ workplace not only for yourselves, but also for a person you meet on your way – a friend, colleague, a person in need on the street! Just share! Solidarity is the only way to overcome poverty!

Let us make a sandwich sharing day! Let us make a SHAREWICH day! Please join, save the date and stay tuned!
