About Agriculture Program
About 820 million people will go to bed hungry tonight. Kids who are hungry do not do well in school, which compromises their future capability to make a living and succeed. The cycle of poverty continues for those children who do not get adequate nutrition and cannot therefore reach their full potential as adults. Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination, and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making.
