The team has had real life experiences of meeting and living in a commumity filled with children that are severely hungered, abandoned and malnourished. With the first hand experience the team (OFN) has, it believes it is going to be able to give real life and practical solutions on how to solve the world's hunger problems. It believes a very credible solution can be proffered to feed over 9billion people. It is said that there is enough food in the world to feed everyone but yet millions are unable to get food, so what is the problem? Where did we miss it? It is believed according to WHO, 2014 that the leading cause of hunger is low income, that is, poverty. Other factors such as climate change, harmful economic systems, conflicts etc. have also been identified as the cause of hunger. Thus, bearing the problems in mind the team seeks to give dynamic solutions to the problems and how effectively over 9billion peope can be feed, in a self supporting system. The solutions would include innovations to enhance food securities, innovative ideas to prevent food wastage as a result poor storage facilities which is particularly a problem in developing countries. To design simple and affordable innovative ideas streamlined to help food producers like farmers etc. The team's name is OFN which means Operation feed nine billion people,the team called itself this so that the aim of the team is never forgotten. This keeps reminding us on the task ahead. Thank you for reading from team OFN.
