Description

IT ‘S ENOUGH!

According to The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2018 by FAO and four other UN agencies, more than 800 million people still go hungry to bed every day. Undernutrition contributes to the death of 3 million children under the age of 5 years every year (UNICEF). Parallelly, social injustice is a rising threat to the vision of an inclusive, free and diverse society where everyone can live up to their potential. Challenge the status quo We believe that innovation is the key to unlock new promising ideas to combat hunger and social injustice. Civil Society Academy, in collaboration with Welthungerhilfe and Impact Hub, is looking for out-of-the-box thinkers and innovators with a passion for Zero Hunger and Social Justice. Join other innovators and submit your application for the Social Innovation Challenge in Africa and Asia by 25th January 2019. Let 2019 be the change you want to see. Let us change the world together!
