We need to stop starvation. Hunger is the number one health risk that takes 25,000 people’s lives every day. One in seven people worldwide go to bed hungry. People all around the World are hungry. Everywhere from India to your own neighborhood, people are going hungry. Although it can happen anywhere, most starvation happens in India and other developing countries. Starvation has gotten so bad in developing countries that one in four children are underweight. I believe that no one should go through starvation and that the world as a whole needs to make more of an attempt to help out. In my hexagon, I used black and white pictures in the back to symbolize the sadness of starvation and to show how serious it is. I also painted “stop hunger” across the front because it is very important that we take steps to stop hunger. I did each letter in a different symbol to show different things. For example, i did a ying-yang sign as an o to show that no matter how different we are, we can work together and make a difference. I hope that in the near future, everyone will be working together to end hunger around the world.

I like how you represented the hunger by putting rice around the edges of your project.

    I teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one day just might change the world.

    I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
