Poverty and Hunger
When children don’t go hungry, their educational development can increase. Poverty causes hunger, which means that many people living in poverty daily face chronic hunger. Poverty reduces educational opportunities for young girls in developing countries. Global food insecurity and malnutrition are two leading factors affecting human growth and development. Although these factors are part of the most serious public health challenges in the world, they are the least addressed.
Our work with local community leaders and advocates enables us to focus on the vital needs of individuals and families. This collaboration also provides a framework for investing in communities to eradicate poverty and hunger so that individuals and families can meet their own basic needs, improve the communities they live in, and create better lives for themselves and their generation.
