                      What are the major challenges facing Africa today?

 

The challenges facing Africa are daunting. Africa has the highest proportion of its people in extreme poverty and is not on target to meet any of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) agreed at the United Nations in 2000. The MDGs are:
Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger Globally, the number of people living in extreme poverty is falling, but there are large variations in progress between regions. Asia is making good progress, but there is little movement elsewhere and sub-Saharan Africa is going backwards.The world already produces enough food, but the key to eradicating hunger is to ensure that ordinary people in the developing world can get access to it and that it’s affordable. Poverty is the principal cause of hunger.

I agree with what Joan said. I feel that the richer people around the world should also help donate money.

I feel sad that the children of Africa are going through this.Though the world is making enough food, the people in africa are still facing poverty.I really hope this will change in the nearing future. We should really feel fortunate living in a country that is having a stable living environment. I agree with what jade said that due to their circumstances, children do not put education first. I really sympathise with them.

I agree with Joan.This shows the problem faced by the people in Africa.Life must be very hard for them , their condition are critical and why aren't the government doing anything or why is their strategies not effective to help their citizens.After looking at this article , shows how the people are fighting it , living in such horrible conditions and not eating healthy while we are wasting food everyday , we should cherish what we have and be thankful for what is given to us .Maybe we can help them too.
