Focus Issue : Food Insecurity

Food insecurity exists when people do not have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. In developing countries, poor communities have neither the resources to produce food nor the ability to buy food to feed their families. Because poor communities do not have enough food to eat, they do not have the physical strength to work or produce. Therefore, they are unable to improve their lives and will continue to live in poverty.
 
Focus Issue: Malnutrition

Malnutrition is a medical condition where the body is unable to maintain normal functions due to a lack of nutritious food. Due to a lack of knowledge on Maternal, Newborn and Child Health and limited access to medical services, maternal and child nutrition is poor. Children who are malnourished are four times more likely to die from infectious diseases than a well-nourished child.
 
Focus Issue: Child abuse and violence

Violence deprives children of their dignity, rights, potential and future, impacting their lives, health and educational opportunities. It is one of the biggest problems affecting children around the world today. Children, in any environment and any country, are the most vulnerable group in the face of violence. This is particularly true for children who live in extreme poverty, especially girls.
