FOOD AND WATER

If there were only 100 people living on this earth, 15 of us - including 3 children - would be undernourished

Lack of earnings or insufficient income means that the poor cannot have food or produce them for their own consumption. Malnutrition prevents children from concentrating properly at school and the parents’ productive capacity is also affected. Lack of training may prompt poor people to make inappropriate choices about food or make mistakes about production, which of course has a direct impact on health and community revenues.

If there were only 100 of us in this world, 22 would have no access to drinking water

"Do not waste water when thousands of people in the developing world are in need of it."
Alexadre, 13
