A place where the blossoms are bright A place where the land is not torn A place where my people are free A place where my children are born That is what my country should be. A land where the people are not silenced, with words like knives, or screams that pierce their heart A land where my friends and foes alike can live in harmony, A nation where my family does not live apart That is where my rights lie. A world full of love , a world ne'er strifed...

Vulnerable children have been disadvantaged in many areas. The strategy that can be used to improve the performance of these children in schools are stated as follows: (1) Subjects where they are not doing well must be identified and helped by both parents, teachers, and the community. (2) Introduce nutrition programmes for these children so that they are provided with food in the areas where they are found. (3) Motivate them through bringing back followers. Vulnerable chil...

A child is born, a resource to our world; Her first thought is not the right vote; In her mother’s arms she’s curled; Her eyes full of hope. She cries because she is hungry; Her mother’s heart aches, For she has no food to give her; But it is that which she needs. A right to food, a right to a home, A right to feel safe, a right to roam; The world awaits her vote but she awaits a meal; It is that which the world must give her. Her mother’s love, a warm plate...

Obesity is becoming a major problem in the world as of late. 520,000,000 people worldwide are obese and about 1,573,000,000 people are overweight. Most of these people live in countries with good economics overall, such as the USA, China and the UK, which means there is always food available. This is quite the contrast to some countries in Africa, where the children’s bellies sometimes swell from malnourishment. Health issues Obesity is the leading preventable cause of de...

Why is it only "Migrants" are treated so cruelly. I was really shocked to see people in such vulnerable conditions. It is a very sensitive issue that nearly 12000 people including children, women, elders have migrated from the north-eastern states just in search of a job and are exploited when they reach their destination. These people have no proper shelter, food, health and sanitation and not even basic education for their children, which are all considered to be basic "HUMAN RIG...

Climate change is transforming the planet’s ecosystems and threatening the well-being of current and future generations, increasing the rate of food shortage as a result of droughts, water shortage, and high temperatures globally. Ever since the first climate talks in Geneva in 1979, there have been a series of climate talks, yet no profound solutions has been attained. This has driven world leaders and scientist into postulating false solutions to climate change which is rapid...

I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...

Nowadays the demand for food in a growing world population is the most challenging of all food issues. The impacts of food to the global environment are imperative drivers for changes. The demand which is not managed well will bring about the greatest squandering of human and natural resources. According to an FAO-commissioned study (2011), one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year - approximately 1.3 billion tons - gets lost or wasted. The amount is equivalen...

Since we are commemorating today the World Food Day, it is the perfect time to remind some of the most shocking and actual facts regarding the huge and deep problems of food security across the nations; in fact, as many nations work through the industrialization and adequacy of their food companies, several nations seem to be not necessarily worried about how their people is eating and being able to consume the products they need, or even if they are consuming the minimum of daily...
