According to the World Food Program, over 828 million people go to bed hungry every night, A total of 50 million people in 45 countries are teetering on the edge of famine.
For many people all over the world simple access to low cost sustainable farming methods and nutritious produce can change everything.
Our mission is providing that access.
Over 20 Million children in Mexico live in extreme poverty. 25% of the population is without access to healthy food. A staggering 52% are without access to clean drinking water. Lack of these basic essentials leads to a spiral effect of malnutrition, dental problems, dehydration and disease. Our volunteers are in the 2nd year of creating the Indigo Azul Project in Jalisco, MX. This is a long term project to design a sustainable Tropical food forest ,art garden, and learning center ran by the youth of the Paso De Guayabo Community.
On the contrast, In 2021, 33.8 million Americans, including 9.3 million children, lived in food-insecure households according to the USDA. Combine this with a widespread lack of proper education about diet and nutrition, and we now see many children in minority communities and low income families suffering the health effects of poor food choices.High blood pressure,obesity,diabetes and other diet related issues are much more common than they should be. We engage all of our youth in our United States programs with fun and educational ways to eat healthy,participate in urban garden projects, and learn about where their food comes from.
Although food problems and solutions may differ depending on culture, community and geographic location, they all deserve a committed response. We are now living in a time with the technologies and the capacity to make this a reality for every human being . If we take action now, and act responsibly, we have a chance to be part of the generation that will can turn things around for the generations to come. At NWKIDS we consider this both our privilege and our responsibility . We welcome you to join us in our efforts. Your time,caring and generosity help allow us to continue our work. We thank you.
