As a global payments’ technology company, Mastercard is focused on leveraging technology in new ways, to benefit not just business, but people and the world around us. The result is a clear and consistent vision of doing well and doing good. In 2012, Mastercard and WFP entered into a strategic partnership, with the ambitious mission of helping communities around the world take important steps towards breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty for future generations. The partnership includes marketing campaigns and other activities, which generate funding for WFP, and leverages on Mastercard’s expertise in payment technology to advance WFP’s operations.
Since the partnership began, Mastercard, its employees, partners, and cardholders have contributed over $30 million to WFP, to support school feeding, emergency response and other programmes.
