Resources – Financing
Kiva.org is the world's first micro-lending website for the
working poor, empowering individuals to lend to an
entrepreneur across the globe.
Founded in 2005, Kiva's mission is to connect people, through lending, to alleviate poverty. Thanks to Kiva, hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs across 53 countries have received loans and currently, those loans have a 98% repayment rate.
Given that 100% of the loans made on Kiva.org go directly to the entrepreneurs Kiva.org features, it is necessary to fundraise tax-deductible donations to cover Kiva.org's operations.
Given the high level of efficiency of Kiva.org for every $1 that Kiva.org raises, Kiva leverages an additional $10 in loans to entrepreneurs. Additionally, if you donate now, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to the generosity of the Omidyar Network.
Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva.org lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.
And every 3.6 seconds a person dies of hunger.
75% of them are children.

- Create more research into new wheat strains.
- Create rapid response mechanism to deal with drought in producer countries.
Response to the Proposed Solution: “Fixing the global food system and ending the food price crisis requires major surgery, measures are needed to stop the prices from rising in the first place,” said Jean-Cyril Dagorn of Oxfam. Global farm groups have called for more market regulation, but that’s been resisted by more free market-oriented governments. But The Biggest Future Problem According to a recent U.N. study, David Nabarro, special representative on food security and nutrition said that a repeat of 2008 is very likely and shortages of food, water and power are bound to create social anxiety and political instability.
Prices will be 20% - 30% higher for cereal and meat.
With global population expected to increase from 6.9 to 9 billion by 2050, the problem of feeding the world put FOOD SECURITY at the top of the G-20 summit’s agenda.

Resources - Aquaponic Community Feeding Systems
Established in 1994, Morning Star Fishermen (morningstarfishermen.org) Phone/Fax (352) 523-2722, (firstname.lastname@example.org) is a non-profit, located in Dade City, Florida, USA offers a number of education resources for those interested in tilapia aqua culture and raising culture plants and vegetables “aquaponically”, including training manuals, educational presentations, and small scale systems perfect for use in a classroom or other learning environments.
Problem: Unstable world food prices causing global instability, especially in poorer countries.
Big Problem: Rising energy prices in 2008 promoted a jump in food prices, that sparked riots in almost 24 countries over 3 continents.
Proposed G-20 Solution: G-20 Agriculture Ministers agreed to calm world food market prices by establishing:
- A transparent system to track global supplies.
- Set up emergency food reserves

Hunger, Starvation - And All The Money Needed To Implement Them
Bobby Burnett, Founder of Love A Child, Inc. with huge tilapia raised in their Tilapia Farm.
Two months after receiving the Pulitzer, Kevin Carter, overwhelmed with pain, committed suicide. "I'm really, really sorry," explained his suicide note, “the pain of life overrides the joy to the point that joy does not exist."
Yet today, February 2016, 24 years later, over 800 MILLION PEOPLE in the world STILL GO TO BED HUNGRY each and every day.
What about the U.S.? 15.9 MILLION under the age of 18 do not get enough nutrition to live a healthy lifestyle. (Statistics from U.S. Department Agriculture).

BELOW: A Morning Star Fishermen Aquaponic Community Feeding System At Work
Expert Hans Geissler from Morning Star Fishermen (morningstarfishermen.org Phone/Fax (352) 523-2722, email@example.com) went to Haiti to set up this Tilapia Fram Farm and Training Center (Below - loveachild.com/tilapia-fish-farm) for missionaries Bobby and Sherry Burnett from LoveAChild.com. He also taught the people how to raise tilapia. They started with 275 fry (babies) and now have over 10,000 fish of all sizes.
This Tilapia Farm and Training Center (below) gives the Haitian people two things they desperately need, food and an opportunity to learn to feed themselves.
Morning Star Fishermen’s (morningstarfishermen.org Phone/Fax (352) 523-2722, Email firstname.lastname@example.org) main facility (below) contains a fish hatchery, a commercial scale aquaponic system, wet lab, and classroom. The hatchery has a 9,000 gallon tank capacity, fish grow-out section has a 36,000 gallon capacity and plant cultivation section has 1,000 ft of growing area under a greenhouse.
Just recently, since energy prices spiked in 2008, there have been FOOD RIOTS in 24 nations, according to the UN.
What has changed to prevent world hunger since 1993? What has changed to stop the needless suffering and deaths and riots in 24 nations? And what does this mean to you?
Virtually nothing has changed, world food supplies and price stability has gotten worse.
What you’re about to learn may startle you.
On June 24, 2011, the world’s largest economies, the G-20 Agriculture Ministers met in Paris, France to stabilize world food prices.
