Kenyan student creating an Internet wonder to help fight World hunger

Did you know that this year, for the first time in human history, the number of

chronically hungry people in the world will exceed one billion?  However, there is

some good news. With over one billion people now accessing the internet, it’s

never been easier for ordinary people to help spread awareness and come

together to tackle world hunger. 

A new idea, created by 21-year-old Software Engineering student, Irvine Ndwiga,

is a simple one. Ndwiga is aiming to encourage one million people to sign up to a

of the amount raised, hopefully $10 million, will be donated to the World Food

Program, as part of their

A Billion for a Billion campaign. 

Irvine Ndwiga, a Kenyan student currently studying in Perth and aspiring

entrepreneur, developed the idea for two reasons; one, it was a challenge that

seemed too good to pass up and secondly, but more importantly, because he

passionately believes this is a benevolent venture that will hopefully inspire

others to harness the power of the Internet for social good.

While it seems like a huge challenge for someone so young, Ndwiga is

unphased. “I’m hoping this venture, promoting social entrepreneurship by

donating 75% of the proceeds to the World Food Program, will inspire others to

do more to add value to other people’s lives,” Ndwiga explains.
