Total people impacted
Today, approximately 702 million people live in extreme poverty and suffer from hunger. These people—neighbors, friends, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers—are disproportionately susceptible to preventable illnesses, infant mortality, stunted physical development, and are hindered from economic growth, directly resulting from their lack of adequate nutrition. We can help. ODW partners with organizations providing sustainable nutrition to those most in need. That means providing families and communities with resources to generate and maintain their own local food sources. That’s sustainable, and that’s empowerment.
We understand that many factors contribute to the existence of hunger including social structures and unstable markets. The world’s poor who rely on subsistance farming or low income jobs are disproportionally affected by changes in climate or inflation. The result is that 1 out of 6 children in developing countries is underweight.
ODW works to raise awareness and support because we know that eliminating world hunger is key to breaking the cycle of poverty. When individuals living in poverty have increased access to food there is improvement in overall health, which allows for increased productivity and eventual escape from poverty.
Although the issue of global hunger is overwhelming, we believe we can make an impact one project at a time. Already, we have directly impacted over 6,000 people in 6 countries, but there is still so much to do! So far our projects target core issues that attribute to hunger through sustainable agricultural development, training, and feeding programs. We have cultivated over 1,200 acres of land with high yielding plant seed. ODW and our parters have pioneered effective ways to impact communities, families, and individuals affected by hunger.
We choose our partners wisely. Each organization goes through a rigorous vetting process before our we approve a grant.
