Free Rice

To provide everyone with free education and to end world hunger, these are the goals of Free Rice.

Visiting the website, you will immediately see that it is centred around a very basic word game. You are given a word, impetuous for example, then asked to select from 4 options the word that means the same thing (i.e. funny, scared, rash or rock).

Each time you answer a word correctly, the website donates 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Programme. They fund this through the adverts on the site, which refresh each time you get asked a question. The whole concept is rather ingenious and it is actually a really good education tool in itself.

I encourage everyone to find out more about Free Rice and check out the different subject categories they have as well.
