This global educational initiative targets teachers in order to provide them with information and activities to introduce children to the issues of hunger, malnutrition, and food security. Easy teaching modules have been developed for each of three levels of education - primary, intermediate and secondary - all of which cover, in varying degrees of complexity, the topics of what are hunger and malnutrition, who are the hungry, why are people hungry and malnourished and what can we do to help end hunger. The materials have been designed as a starting point for teachers around the world to introduce these topics to their students. Teachers can adapt and refine the materials to meet local needs and conditions. In addition, a key component of the initiative is information sharing among teachers and students in such a way as to create an interactive forum for exchanging ideas and experiences around the world. The materials and the interactive, online framework encourage teachers to contribute additional lessons and activities leading toward creating a world free from hunger.
