Around 1.2 billion people struggle to make ends meet

Hunger is a fact of life for one in seven people worldwide. People like Bhikhni Devi, an Indian from Bihar. Tragically, 13 other villagers, such hunger is a pervasive problem. The combined population of the US, Europe, and the rest of the wealthy globe is equal to the number of hungry people. Being hungry at night is a hidden, preventable, and common tragedy.

The international extreme poverty limit is $2.25 per day, and around 1.2 billion people struggle to make ends meet. When more than a billion people get unhealthy from eating too much food and almost as many suffer from not enough, there is clearly a serious problem with our food system.

No child should go bed hungry says Joe Biden the US presiden

"If you look at your child and you can't feed your child, what the hell else matters?" President Joe Biden said at the summit. "In America, no child should go to bed hungry. No parent should die of a disease that can be prevented.”

"The scale of hunger in the US has risen in the past few years, driven largely by the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing cost of living. More than 38 million Americans struggle with ongoing hunger, including 11.7 million children who are severely impacted by the lack of nutrition." 

The above statement is by the US president, I wonder why our leaders in Africa never think like that. The level of hungeofnd and unemployment in Africa is way over if you consider it with the nations around the world. Still, our leaders never come to think of a way out of this.

We have fertile land for agriculture, anyway, some countries among us, have abundant mineral resources, but we never think of a way to use this opportunity rather we relaxed and wait for donations from foreign countries. Is time for Africans to realize their potential and bring something to the table.

Russia's decision to suspend its participation in a UN grain deal has triggered concerns over foodsecurity worldwide

Russia's decision to suspend its participation in the United Nations grain agreement has raised concerns over global food security, but efforts are being made to maintain the agreement.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he helped break the deadlock over the grain deal after months of negotiations, saying on Monday the country was determined to keep the grain deal intact.

Erdogan Turkey president said in a televised address that "Russia is hesitant to act, but will resolutely continue its efforts to serve humanity," AFP reported.

We support UN-led efforts to maintain the agreement and stress that all parties must refrain from unilateral actions that would jeopardize the Black Sea Grains Initiative. Agriculture Commissioner Janusz Wojciechowski said in Brussels, blaming Ukraine.

Food Production And Food Security In Africa Have Decline


Food production and food security in Africa have suffered an incredible decline as drought has left crops unable to irrigate their crops and natural disasters such as floods and hurricanes have devastated other areas. I'm here.

Adapting to unpredictable weather patterns to protect and promote agriculture on the continent is more than just a solution. We need it for the future of agriculture and to alleviate hunger across the continent.

Nigerian Singer And Global Superstar, Wizkid Is Committed When It Comes To Improving Education And Hygeine For Everyone



Nigerian singer and global superstar, Wizkid is committed to making his voice heard when it comes to improving education and hygiene for everyone, especially girls and children, in Nigeria.

In a series of tweets, Wizkid urged Lagos Governor Akinwunmi Ambod to invest in "removing barriers for Nigerians" starting with quality education and proper hygiene for all. Wizkid aims to ensure that all Nigerians have adequate access to sanitation through a proposed National Sanitation Fund, one of the first steps towards ensuring that every child in Nigeria has a decent education. 

Nigeria has made progress on this issue, but the situation is far from perfect. More than 70 million Nigerians still lack access to safe drinking water and open defecation rates remain dangerously high.

The federal government of Nigeria has indicated that it wants to set up a fund worth up to $90 million, but the state governments of Nigeria must be willing to share the bill if the fund is established.

So far, Nigerian state governors have shown little interest in the fund, despite its great importance to the education, health, economic growth and dignity of the Nigerian people. This is why Wizkid speaks on behalf of those who cannot in Nigeria.

UNESCO more than 3 million girls in Pakistan and nearly 5.5 million girls in Nigeria are out of school


According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), more than 3 million girls in Pakistan and nearly 5.5 million girls in Nigeria are out of school. Twelve years of education are recommended for children, but that's a "distant reality" for young girls living in poverty, according to a new report.

Instead, many girls in rural and low-income areas around the world attend school in her five years or less, according to a Cambridge University study. According to the World Bank, if a girl is not educated, the country will lose $15 trillion to $30 trillion in productivity and income from her. 

Communities improve when more girls are educated. According to UNESCO research, if all mothers completed primary education, maternal mortality would be reduced by about 65% and child mortality by 15%. If all these women also received secondary education, the number of child deaths would be 50% lower than hers, saving 3 million lives a year. It is also estimated that if all young girls received secondary education, the rate of child marriage would be reduced by about two-thirds.

The researchers behind new research are urging leaders to fight for women's education.

By 2023, the world’s agricultural system will not produce enough food to feed everyone in the world


As the human population continues to climb, will there come a time when the world runs out of food?

The United Nations and agricultural organizations have been asking this question for quite some time.

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates the world population will surpass 9.1 billion by 2050, at which point agricultural systems will not be able to supply enough food to feed everyone.


By 2023, the world’s agricultural system will not produce enough food to feed everyone in the world, according to Sara Menker, founder, and chief executive of Gro Intelligence, an agricultural data technology company.

Menker announced her company’s findings in her TEDGlobal 2017 talk in Arusha, Tanzania. She is part of a series of speakers at the four-day conference in Arusha — the first time TEDGlobal has returned to Africa in ten years.

Her research contradicts past estimates.

Humanitarian organization Oxfam has predicted the world will run out of food around 2050 when a growing world population exceeds food growing capacity. Climate change, crop failures, and a rise in food prices for items like corn and rice will also contribute to the world’s population outpacing the amount of food it produces, according to their study. With many aid organizations and governments focusing on the immediate food insecurity in Africa, this new study could call more attention to the long-term food insecurity question that may, in fact, not be so far away.

Hunger Is Forcing Many Kids Out Of School


In Lagos state NGOs like the Lagos Food Bank (LFB) are working to reach more indigent children with safe and nutritious food. 

That's the kind of community change we are looking for. What are u doing for your community? 


Don't think you don't have the money you don't have this, you don't have that. The little you have can make a very serious change in your community. Do something and stop waiting for the government to do it for you. 

Let's Fight Malaria, TB, And AIDS

Over 700 million people in our world currently live in extreme poverty. 70% of these numbers are Africans. Our leaders are doing nothing to change this number. People like me and you can force them to take action on this. At the Global Citizens, we hold those responsible for making a change to act. With collective action, we can change this.

Agriculture Can Save Millions Of Youths Out Of The Poverty


Agriculture has proven over and over again as a tool for fighting poverty in many nations of the world. Agriculture in Nigeria gave us the crude oil we all enjoy from. Chines used agriculture to become what they are today. 

 Agriculture with the right tool can guarantee the 5 times return of the investment.

I'm using agriculture to help youths in my community. Last year's participants are doing okay now, you cannot believe they were unemployed before. I believe we can do better if we start from our community by targeting the youths and changing their lives to be a leader of tomorrow.
