Sign The Petition Telling World Leaders to Deliver on Their Promise to End Hunger.

The agenda is about to be set. Priorities will be made and cut. We need your help to put food on the table for the world’s poor, before it’s too late.

Representatives from the G7 countries are meeting in Rome, Italy this Friday to discuss priorities for the G7 Summit in May. They could either take action, or forget their promise to end hunger by 2030.Save the Hungry

Sign the petition telling world leaders to deliver on their promise to end hunger.

In 2015, world leaders from the G7 set the ambitious target of lifting 500 million people out of hunger and malnutrition by 2030. In the same year, the G7 leaders (along with the rest of the world leaders) agreed to end all forms of malnutrition by 2030, for all people. But we are still waiting on them to fulfill their promise.
For every child that will die today from malnutrition and every person that will go to bed hungry tonight, we need leaders from the G7 to act urgently to make their commitments a reality.

Thousands of Global Citizens have already signed the petition to make food a priority at this year’s G7 Summit and now – with very little time left – we are asking for your support.


There’s not much time. Add your name to the petition NOW and ask world leaders to urgently deliver their promise.

It’s still outrageous that one woman is dying every minute in pregnancy or childbirth in Uganda! —-“women’s day”

These are explanations, but they are not excuses. It is still outrageous that one woman is dying every minute in pregnancy or childbirth.

So what are the stories behind these facts?

Consider the economic and political factors that are causing these maternal deaths to persist.

Is enough investment being made in improving maternal health? Is maternal mortality high enough on the political agenda? Why do health centers lack staff and equipment? What role do health workers play in reducing maternal mortality?

Think also of the social and cultural factors. Are women undervalued in these societies? How do gender attitudes contribute to the high levels of maternal mortality? What role do communities play in ensuring their mothers are cared for properly before, during and after childbirth?

What lessons can be learnt from other countries – are there any ‘success stories’ which provide examples of good practice?

Think of the mothers and fathers of tomorrow “Youths” in ICT – Are there ways of using ICT solutions to curb down these maternal deaths, Do you have an idea, project, feeling, instinct, application or any solution?  Hurry and join the YITEDEV-Uganda innovation space to have these ideas coded, programmed, developed and Implemented.
