We are all aware of that infamous fact that the world produces enough food annually to feed whole humanity. Yet 870 million (of the 7.1 billion world populace) go to bed without enough food in their bellies. The main reason behind this terrible fact is that these poor people don't have the economic capability to purchase food or the land to produce it by themselves. And the reason behind their low economic status is the great inequality in the distribution of wealth. Our mission is to destroy this ghost called hunger and we will use all resources at our disposal, especially modern scientific methodologies and technology to combat the plague of hunger, all the while making sure that this mission is sustainable both environmentally and economically. Thus the ultimate goal is to ensure that the predicted world population of 9 billion humans will get their required optimum calories and nutrition by the year 2050.
We are a 3 member team from the South-Eastern coastal city of Chennai, India. We all are engineering students. We've seen first hand how terrible and demoralizing is hunger. You just can't think of anything else when you have hunger burning through your stomach. So, on fine day, we decided that we'll make an effort to battle hunger by using science and tech. We can't stand the great inequality of wealth and resource distribution among world population where the few rich people control vast amount of resources. Its time the unfortunate poor people rise up for their rights and demand what is rightfully their's --- enough food. And its the duty of every government to feed the hungry and provide them with adequate land and technical know-how to produce food in an eco-friendly way. We'll use all the available channels to create awareness among people about their rights and work towards coercing the governments to rise upto the task at hand. We intend to bring out the wonderful new technologies of sustainable food production being developed in various research laboratories around the world and apply them on the farmland and thus increase the annual food production to meet the nutritional requirements of a whopping population of 9 billion individuals by 2050. We will work towards disseminating the knowledge to farmers and agriculturists, about efficient farming methodologies to improve the food production without furthering the toll on environment.
