Famine in Africa

Information

Did you know that a child dies from hunger every 13 seconds? Around the world there are 925 million people who are hungry. Most of these people that are affected are in Africa. 66 million primary school aged students attend school hungry every day. 23 million of those kids alone are from Africa. Famine kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. If women farmers had the same access to resources as men, the number of hungry people would reduce by up to 150 million. The people living with chronic hunger has declined by 130 million people over the past 20 years. Let's help find a way to keep reducing famine in Africa.
