1 in 6 people in America face hunger. Households with children reported a significantly higher food insecurity rate than households without children in 2011: 20.6 percent vs. 12.2 percent. Food insecurity exists in every county in America. In 2011, 17.9 million households were food insecure. 50.1 million Americans struggle to put food on the table. In the US, hunger isn’t caused by a lack of food, but rather the continued prevalence of poverty. More than 1 in 5 children is at risk of hunger. A...

From my own observations, the majority of people in my country (Zambia) do not really connect with issues whose effects are not instant. Climate change is inclusive! For as long as climate change effects are not directly affecting them, a greater part of the Zambian population gives a blind eye and a deaf ear to issues of climate change. However, many others among them, feel connected to climate related issues once they directly affect them. A practical example that may have pushed people to po...

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...

Poverty and hunger is something our world needs to really focus on! Many people around the country are faced with living difficulties due to them not having stable homes and uncooked meals. I believe the only way we can change this is by making a commitment to giving back to people who are not as fortunate as we are. Money doesn't grow on trees! If that was true everyone would be rich! It comes from hard work and dedication to making our lives better! People in poverty don't have t...

30% of children in developing countries, about 600 million people, live on less than $1 a day. The majority of these children are under five years old. It would only cost about 25 cents to give every child the essential needs they need to grow up big and strong. About every 4 seconds, a person dies of extreme hunger.

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...

It is typically Malaysian to eat half a bowl of rice and throw the other half into the bin. It seems like it has never crossed anyone's mind that half way across the globe, people are starving to death. Malnutrition is slowly killing them all, not to mention the many other diseases that take their lives. This poverty deeply affects the younger generation, the future leaders. How are they to make this world a better and more sustainable world if they themselves are in starvation...

The recent catastrophe in the Phillipines has affected millions of people around the globe. Yes, I'm talking about Typhoon Haiyan. Children in the affected areas don't have roofs above their heads, nothing to eat, no clean water and no schools. Parents are having a rough time getting things together for their families. I believe it would be great to do our part in helping the victims. Charity, people, charity!! Heartfelt prayers and strength to all of you in the Phillipines. Stay s...

Stop Child Labour. Often we hear voices from the responsible and hearted people of society. How we can we be the ones who are also kind-hearted and responsible?! Lets talk ... Children do heavy work for the sake of money. The need money for buying food, food for themselves or for their family, and also for some other basic needs like clothes, drugs, school fees etc. Can you imagine this scenario: A 10 year old boy comes to a factory for work because his younger sister is sick and she needs medic...
