Freida Pinto helps hundreds of hungry people with Oscars leftovers

March 7, 2017


Hundreds of hungry people were given the food left over from the Oscars thanks to an initiative spearheaded by actor Freida Pinto.

Around 800 Los Angelenos were fed after the Slumdog Millionaire star teamed up with Copia, an organisation that uses technology to tackle food waste.

The Governor’s Ball party was treated to an extravagant feast prepared by top chef Wolfgang Puck. Around 3,000 plates of luxury food – including golden baked potatoes with caviar, Oscar shaped salmon and gold dusted popcorn – were served up to guests, but large quantities of food were also left over.

Insider chefs say every year dishes such as chicken pot pie and pasta usually go uneaten, Salon reported. “Our aim is to ensure that no one goes hungry in our film and TV town of Los Angeles by recovering leftover foods from all of our big parties and events,” Ms Pinto told Vanity Fair. source

Freida Pinto speaks for girls’ rights

July 24, 2014

Yesterday, Freida Pinto delivered a speech on rights and issues concerning girls and women, at the world’s first-ever summit for girls in Londo.

The summit, jointly organised by the government of United Kingdom and Unicef, is aimed at mobilising domestic and international efforts to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) within this generation.

Freida delivered the closing speech along with the Deputy Prime Minister of UK.

FinancialExpress.com — “Girls and women have the right to live free from violence and discrimination and achieve their potential, but some are being prevented from doing so by harmful practices such as FGM and CEFM, which are illegal in the UK. Girls affected by child marriage and FGM are among the most vulnerable in the world,” Freida said in a statement here. Freida said that she looks forward to discussing how ending child marriage and FGM can preserve a girl’s childhood, promote her education, and reduce her exposure to violence and abuse, thus allowing her to make choices about her own future and fulfill her potential in life.

“More than 125 million girls and women alive today have suffered some form of FGM in the 29 countries where the practice is concentrated. UNICEF estimates that globally, around one in three young women aged 20 to 24 were married before the age of 18. Around 23 million girls entered into marriage before they reached 15,” the 26-year-old actress said. Freida said that she was concerned about the incidents of FGM and CEFM in India as well.

“It maybe a small community of people that practise it but no matter how small the number is its a violation of human rights and those girls are significant and important to us. We are aware that child marriage is a common practise in some communities but we also need to be aware of the full extent of its damage caused to these young lives physical and psychological,” Freida said.

Freida Pinto Visits Sierra Leone

May 12, 2012

Here’s another reason to love Freida Pinto. She’s currently on a three-day visit in Sierra Leone to encourage children in Makeni “not to give up hope” as there is a bright future ahead of them because of the courage and determination she has seen in them. Speaking to the children at the Girls Making Media Project, Freida Pinto stated that children have right to education, and their rights are to be respected and preserved even by their parents and the communities they find themselves.

“I am here also to learn from these girls,” she declared, adding, “I am really moved by the courage of the children because at their ages, they can be able to use the media effectively and they know what they want, and they can speak to their parents about what they want. This has made me believe strongly that even with the ten years war this country has gone through, you the girls still have hope and I really admire the way you look and analyze issues affecting your lives,” she stated.

During her interaction with some of the girls involved in child rights advocacy, the Slumdog Millionaire star questioned the girls about their aspirations and why they decided to be advocates for their rights and the rights of their colleagues. The girl advocates and some of the girls explained different experiences and encounters with their families, friends, and even society with regards discrimination against girls. Freida Pinto assured the girls that she will pay attention to their stories as they have reported to her to ensure that their world is made a better place for them. She noted, “It does not take a famous person to make changes but the will and mind set of the individual.”

She said that throughout her trip, all that she has learnt from the children will strengthen her hope and resolve in her campaign to empower young girls and boys for the development of the world. During the meeting with the Deputy Mayor of Makeni, Isatu Fofanah, she said she was happy for the visit and disclosed that in the past, education for girls in the district was a taboo as parents do not send their girl- child to school, but the inception of FAWE awareness about sending the girl-child to school washed away that old held tradition that discriminated against the girl-child being sent to school. “With this awareness by FAWE, girls are now coming out and getting education and this has helped them to take part in decision making processes in their communities,” she noted. She however expressed concern that they are still grappling with what she said was “the admiration” girls are having for their colleagues involved in petty trading which she said “is seriously impacting on the level at which the girls go in their education.” She called for civil society engagement in this area, “to preserve the continuity of girls in schools and vocational institutions,” she said.

Big thanks to visitor Emmanuelle for the heads up and the Awoko Newspaper for the article. How great is Freida?!
