CEO Clubs CSR – ZERO HUNGER
According to the World Food Programme, 135 million suffer from acute hunger mainly due to man-made conflicts, climate change, and economic downturns. The COVID-19 pandemic could now double that number, putting an additional 130 million people at risk of suffering acute hunger by the end of 2020. With such alarming numbers, CEO Clubs Network decided take the responsibility along with members to contribute our shares towards to a world with ZERO Hunger by the year 2030.
CEO Clubs Network is an international business platform with a focus on business community building through networking events and facilitating business. We have assisted thousands of CEOs and Entrepreneurs to their business growth from our last 15 years of history. Today, we like to extend the spirit to more people who need help. Our founder and CEO, Vice Chairman at UN DRR Arise UAE, Dr. Tariq Nizami leads the team along with the CEO Clubs Members to contribute our shares to the people who are suffering from hunger. For the first two quarters of the year, CEO Clubs Network’ contribution will go to children's hunger around the world and in the last two quarters, we will focus on refugees.
As a CEO or a business owner, we should not be shy away from our humanitarian duties. We will put actions together towards our goal of ZERO HUNGER, one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And as a business community, we will take this as a way of giving back to society, putting collective efforts and dedicating the resources towards the second out of 17 SDGs, “ZERO HUNGER”.
We are proud and happy to take responsibility and be part of the force for the 17 SGDs. Our community members will play a key role in making great things happen, making a big change in the year 2021. As put forward by the popular American songwriter and artist Michael Jackson,
"We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let's start giving"
