Hunger-a Violation of Human Rights

The world can feed twice its population, yet 1 in 8 suffers from chronic hunger globally. The reasons include unequal distribution of resources, lack of awareness and education, environmental degradation, wars, or simply apathy. My volunteer experience with Heifer International, a global nonprofit, which works to end hunger and poverty while caring for the earth, confirmed my belief that by working together, we can end world hunger. As an Education Volunteer at Heifer, every day I taught children from all walks of life and different ages about what Heifer is doing to end hunger and poverty around the world, and how they can feel empowered to act. The single connection that can be drawn between all the causes of hunger is people, if so, are we all responsible for something?
