Old lady walking her cow home through the paddy fields

    Newer Older

    This Santal woman lives in an adivasi ('tribal') area in the north of Bangladesh. Especially for older women in Bangladesh it is very hard to survive. Sometimes a cow is the only thing they possess. Sometimes it is not even their own, but they raise it for someone else and then get half of its offspring.
    Over a billion people go hungry in the world, one in every six persons in the world, 642 million of them in Asia and the Pacific. This while more than enough food is being produced to feed the whole world. Hunger and poverty are political problems. See: www.viacampesina.org, an organisation of small farmers worldwide.
