Coins 4 Kids

Almost a decade ago, International Paper first partnered with the World Food Program USA to pioneer Coins 4 Kids, an innovative program that empowers employees to help feed hungry children in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. To date, International Paper has raised over US$6.5 million – that’s 26 million meals – for United Nations World Food Program school meals in Kenya. Through Coins 4 Kids, International Paper’s leadership is helping to break the cycle of hunger and poverty.

Coins 4 Kids – Our work with the World Food Program USA provides nutritious school meals to nearly 630,000 pre- school and elementary-aged children living in impoverished areas of Nairobi, Kenya. In 2012, International Paper donated nearly $800,000 to the program, as well as manufacturing and distributing paper collection cups for the program’s fundraisers globally.
