  • Hunger takes more lives than diseases combined

     

     

     

     

     

    Every year, authors, journalists, teachers, researchers, school children and students ask us for statistics about hunger and malnutrition. In this issue we have availed a list of useful facts and figures on world hunger from the World Food Programme to help answer most of the youths questions:

    1. 842 million people in the world do not have enough to eat. This number has fallen by 17 percent since 1990.

    2. The vast majority of hungry people (827 million) live in developing countries, where 14.3 percent of the population is undernourished.

  • Youth's voice on the passed anti-gay bill in Uganda

    Irrespective of the international community pressure, President Yoweri Museveni finally signed the controversial bill into law.

    The bill punishes gay sex with up to life in prison.

    This was after the President delegated a panel of experts to advise him on whether homosexuality was "learned" that is, if it was a behavior or an inborn condition. The scientist consensus statement concluded that homosexuality is not a disease or an "abnormality", but that it "can be influenced by environmental factors" such as "culture, religion, information, permissiveness". Homosexual behavior, the statement said, "needs regulation like any other human behavior, especially to protect the vulnerable".
