We live in a world in which one in nine people are undernourished. That’s We live in a world in which one in nine people are undernourished. That’s about 11% of the world’s population, or 795 million people.

This is a problem for a range of reasons. Foremost, it’s unjust. In a world of our wealth, everyone should be able to get the nutrition they need to live healthy lives. Ensuring people are well-nourished is also vital to the health and development of children – and to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals’ vision of a world without poverty and with dignity for all.

Malnourishment can compromise immune systems, delay cognitive development, stunt growth, cause pregnancy complications, and so much more. The good news is we have solutions to help people around the world get the nourishment they need to survive and thrive. And through the Sustainable Development Goals, the international community has agreed to work toward an end of malnutrition in the world by 2030.

Across the globe, women make up a large part of agricultural labor: In Sub-Saharan Africa in 2015, they represented 40 % of the agricultural labor force. In some developing countries, their contributions exceed 50%. Closing the gender gap could increase yields on women-run farms by 20-30%. This could raise total agricultural output in developing countries by 2.5- 4%.

When women are linked to agricultural value chains from production all the way to processing and marketing, they help make traditional farming more productive and commercially viable. Inclusive value chains also offer work opportunities for women and men off the farm. #endingpoverty #SDG3 #SustainableDev #zerohunger #Agenda2030

DAPP Zambia is increasing access to clean water in the lacking and dry parts of Zambia. This is done through mainstreaming water, sanitation and hygiene education in Monze district of Zambia by covering 164 villages with a combined population of approximately 44,300 people.

The current evidence indicates that water scarcity affects more than 40 per cent of the global population and is projected to rise. Drought afflicts some of the world’s poorest countries, worsening hunger and malnutrition. Sub-Saharan Africa and Zambia specifically are in need of support to ensure access to water and sanitation for all – Sustainable Development Goal 6. #SDG6 #accesstowaterandsanitation #WorldWaterreport #sustainabledevelopment

Poverty can push girls into age-disparate relationships, a driver of HIV risk for young women and adolescent girls. For example, in South Africa, 34% of sexually active adolescent girls report being in a relationship with a man at least five years their senior. Such relationships expose young woman and girls to unsafe sexual behaviours, low condom use and increased risk of sexually transmitted infection.

Humana People to People is implementing a DREAMS program in South Africa. The program is working to reduce HIV infection among Adolescent Girls and Young Women of South in Gauteng and Kwazul Natal provinces. Girls whose age group falls in the bracket of 10 – 19 years and young women who are 20 – 24 years including the male sexually active aged 25 – 49 years are the targeted key population. #DREAMS #SDG3 #EndAIDSby2030 #AGYW

Humana People to People find it sad that the inequalities between boys and girls in school start early, particularly in the poorest countries– for instance, many girls are forced to stay home because they need to work to make enough money to eat their next meal; as another example, once girls hit puberty, they might not attend school due to a lack of access to sanitation facilities.

As an organization, Humana People to People mainstream gender equality in most of its development programs to change the unfortunate circumstances that is arresting most girls potential to escape poverty in developing countries mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa and India. Not only are these girls missing out on opportunities to fulfil their highest potential, but they are more vulnerable as a result.

The Humana Step-Up education project in India is helping girls from economically challenged families to not fall out of schooling but support retention of girls in primary schooling. Girls out of school are more likely to become child brides, are more vulnerable to diseases like HIV and are more likely to die young. #SustainabledevelopmentGoals #Agenda2030 #EveryGirlCounts #GenderEquality
