    FOOD JUSTICE

    Children of the shadows

    Food justice

    There’s something seriously wrong with our food system. The world produces enough food to feed the entire planet and yet, 870 million people go to sleep hungry every night. In contrast, another 1,000 million suffer different forms of obesity; a disease which has already become chronic in many countries. More than a quarter of the food we produce ends up in the trash, as result of an inefficient marketing system and a model of consumption based on waste and capricious demands.

    Transgender political activism in Brazil only began in the 1990s, as a result of the AIDS epidemic, in contrast to gay and lesbian mobilization for equal rights which dates back to the 1970s.
    Transgender people have been less successful than gay men and lesbians in gaining any form of public acceptance and legal rights.

    Microcredit and women´s empowerment

    Women and Microcredit in Bangladesh – January 2012

    Microfinance, also known as microcredit, has rapidly grown in Bangladesh during the 1990s and it has enjoyed correspondingly growing prominence.

    Microcredit is one of the most visible innovation in anti-poverty policy where it has been successful in bringing formal financial services to the poor.
    Microfinance programs have the potential to transform power relations and empower the poor—both men and women. In well-run microfinance programs,  there is a relationship of respect between the provider and the client that is inherently empowering.

    Microcredit is the most visible innovation in anti-poverty policy in the last half-century, and in three decades it has grown dramatically. Now with almost 130 million borrowers, microcredit has undoubtedly been successful in bringing formal financial services to the poor. Many believe it has done much more, and that by putting money into the hands of poor families (and often women) it has the potential to increase investments in health and education and empower women.
