The first time I saw a hungry child I thought my heart would break. You don’t have to look far to see it but I’ve seen chronic hunger and it’s a different face than anything I’ve ever experienced in the United States. That’s why I’m sharing this post as a part of my work with Mom Bloggers for Social Good Global Team of 200 to raise awareness for Save the Children’s Nutrition Campaign.

World Leaders will meet June 8th for the Nutrition for Growth Summit in London. Lacking basic nutrition not only stunts children’s growth but also severely impairs the ability for children to learn. (via Super Power Nutrition! | about proximity)
As part of the Save the Children’s Nutrition Campaign, the Global Team of 200 is trying to get the word out about the importance of feeding kids healthy food. President Obama is meeting with World leaders at two G8 Summits in June and it is important that they take this issue up. One way you could help would be to tweet this: @whitehouse let’s make sure all kids get healthy food in their #next1000days so they can reach their full potential. #Nutrition4Growth (via Poor Nutrition Reduces Children’s Ability to Learn #SavetheChildren)
A new report from Save the Children called Food for Thought gives us a few more reasons. Malnutrition can be tied to their ability to learn and their prosperity when they reach adulthood.

Campaigning against violence against women does not diminish any pursuance of eliminating violence for all humans, but there is a particular reason why this must be a focus of the world at this time: The United Nations General Assembly defines “violence against women” as “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or mental harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life.” The 1993 Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women noted that this violence could be perpetrated by assailants of either gender, family members and even the “State” itself. Women are often the victims of violence simply because they are women. (via International Womens Day 2013 | A green living, green parenting blog)
