Austin Community College District Technical Busi…
Austin Community College Technical Business Writing students have set a goal to raise $5000.00 to benefit Heifer International. Students hope that by raising funds for this noble cause that they will simultaneously raise public awareness in the efforts to end world hunger.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UNFAO) estimates that about 805 million people, or one in nine, were suffering from chronic undernourishment.
For the world as a whole, per capita food availability is 2790 kcal/person/day as of 2006-08 and continues to grow. So if food availability is 2790 calories per day for every person on the planet, then why is there a global epidemic of food shortage and hunger? The principal problem is that many people in the world do not have sufficient income to purchase (or land to grow) enough food.
Heifer International offers a viable solution, and has bettered the lives of countless individuals, families and communities with their noble efforts.
“Heifer Intl. distributes animals, along with agricultural and values-based training to families in need around the world as a means of providing self-sufficiency. Recipients must agree to “pass on the gift” by sharing animal offspring, as well as the skills and knowledge of animal husbandry and agricultural training with other impoverished families”(www.heifer.org).
Austin Community College Technical Business Writing students are working with 3M Innovative Technologies and their sustainability department to match funds that are generated through this page to benefit Heifer International.
Give the gift of life, give the gift of sustainability today!
