Hunger Index is using available hunger data and analytics to develop maps and info-graphics for the emergency response industry.
We also hope to use our data visualization tools to raise awareness within communities about existing hunger hot-spots for communal action.
Sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the highest prevalence of hunger with one in four persons is undernourished, World Food Program also calculates that US$3.2 billion is needed per year to reach all 66 million hungry school age children and we realize that this is a very reachable target if this data was available in a context easily understood by all people.
Food wastage is also high in Sub-Saharan Africa with over a third of the food produced going to waste most times attributed to limited information between areas with a lot and those with shortage.
We have a mission ensure that hunger will be completely curbed to zero through ensuring that information about hunger hit areas can easily accessed in formats that can easily be used by all people.
