A world without hunger is possible!
Healthy food should be affordable and accessible to everyone. However, 783 million people – 1 in 10 people worldwide – suffer from hunger. As a partner of the international nonprofit organization The Hunger Project, we believe that things can be different. Today, on World Food Day, we draw attention to this issue and invite you to join us. Because is it possible to have enough food for everyone? Yes, it is.
What is World Food Day?
World Food Day, declared by the United Nations in 1979, focuses this year on the importance of water for food. It’s the day when the global need for sufficient and healthy food for all takes center stage. It’s also the day when Management Drives, together with The Hunger Project, raises awareness about the 783 million people suffering from hunger worldwide.
“We need to rethink how we address hunger. It’s time to invest in people and communities and to change the global systems that benefit only a few.”
Rowlands Kaotcha – Director for Africa, The Hunger Project
A world without hunger: The Hunger Project proves it’s possible
Nearly 10% of the world’s population suffers from chronic hunger. Achieving Zero Hunger by 2030 (Sustainable Development Goal #2) becomes more challenging if we don’t address the fundamental flaws in our food system.
Despite recent alarming statistics about the SDGs, Management Drives, in partnership with The Hunger Project, believes that a hunger-free world is achievable. How? By smartly investing in sustainable solutions. The results of The Hunger Project’s 500,000 trained changemakers demonstrate that it’s possible. From cultivating climate-resistant crops in Mozambique to establishing gardens in India and providing vocational training in Ghana, check out 10 successful initiatives within their integrated approach, each contributing to a world without hunger.
Action is urgently needed to eradicate hunger once and for all. Curious about what you can do on World Food Day? Click here and take an extra step with Management Drives on the path toward a hunger-free world.
