Student Voices

My name is Hafsa Farhan and I study in P.I.S. I've been working on this project alongside my friends for over a year now and I must say it has been so amazing and wonderful to do so. I am one of the student ambassadors.

In this project we don't only get to do research and more research but we can help people who are suffering from hunger by spreading awareness and raising charity. It is so very important that we help people understand why hunger is a huge issue which hasn't been able to he solved yet and it's our duty as human beings to do that.

I am thankful to Ms. Mary and my teacher for giving me the chance to become a student ambassador and I sincerely hope I'm able to help and guide you guys the way I was guided. I know that this is a experience filled with learning and understanding and I hope you all enjoy your time while doing this project.

Signing out for now,
Hafsa Farhan.

 

Our Journey
Hafsa Farhan

It’s been an amazing year working with all of you. In the beginning we all had thought that this would be another one of those boring projects that we do and it’ll be finished in 4 months tops. AND I’m so glad to say that we couldn’t be further from the truth. This past year has been wonderful and full of new opportunities and lessons for us all. I remember the first task that was given to us all was to come up with causes and reasons for hunger in this world. We all of course went to the Internet for aid and what we read, what we saw was truly life changing. IN that moment we all were so grateful to be so privileged, privileged enough to get food three times a day and privileged enough to get enough water. We all realized that as the future of this world and for our own futures we must work ourselves in order to make this world a better world. We all decided to not only raise awareness but also raise funds for the cause of donation and I’m proud, proud to say the we did so.

No matter how many words I use and no matter what I say it can never properly communicate the feelings that we all felt when we were able to make a difference though it may be a minor difference but a difference nonetheless. My dear fellows, me and my fellow team members not only learned about this world and the struggles people go through every single day but we also got a new mentor in the form of Ms. Mary along with our already amazing teacher Ma’am Ambreen.

My only wish now is that we are able to make you all feel as welcome as we did and I hope with all my heart that we all together make a difference. For even little steps amount to larger ones. To conclude, I would like to say that now it’s in our hands to make our futures bright and our world a better one.

The Great Tablecloth
by Pablo Neruda



When they were called to the table,
the tyrants came rushing
with their temporary ladies;
it was fine to watch the women pass
like wasps with big bosoms
followed by those pale
and unfortunate public tigers.
The peasant in the field ate
his poor quota of bread,
he was alone, it was late,
he was surrounded by wheat,
but he had no more bread;
he ate it with grim teeth,
looking at it with hard eyes.
In the blue hour of eating,
the infinite hour of the roast,
the poet abandons his lyre,
takes up his knife and fork,
puts his glass on the table,
and the fishermen attend
the little sea of the soup bowl.
Burning potatoes protest
among the tongues of oil.
The lamb is gold on its coals
and the onion undresses.
It is sad to eat in dinner clothes,
like eating in a coffin,
but eating in convents
is like eating underground.
Eating alone is a disappointment,
but not eating matters more,
is hollow and green, has thorns
like a chain of fish hooks
trailing from the heart,
clawing at your insides.
Hunger feels like pincers,
like the bite of crabs,
it burns, burns and has no fire
Hunger is a cold fire.
Let us sit down soon to eat
with all those who haven’t eaten;
let us spread great tablecloths,
put salt in the lakes of the world,
set up planetary bakeries,
tables with strawberries in snow,
and a plate like the moon itself
from which we can all eat.
For now I ask no more
than the justice of eating.
