From parched land to arms full of vegetables. This Sudanese woman was once not allowed to grow food, and now she and hundreds of women like her run small-scale farms and gardens that thrive in water-scarce areas of #Sudan. It’s with drip irrigation optimized through #nuclear science that they can now feed their families, earn a stable income, and are reinvesting their money into the health and future of their children. One way the #IAEA takes on the @ZeroHungerchallenge. (Photo: N. Jawerth)

At Little Ray of Hope we ensure that everyday all 95 of our kids (120 during school holidays) get food everyday. Porridge in the morning (as seen in the pic) and a meal of rice or ugali with vegetables for lunch. In the porridge they also get vitamins to keep them strong 💪. The kids that we know do not get food at home in the evenings get an extra bit for lunch. This is our little bit towards a world with #zerohunger!! @zerohungerchallenge #zerohungerchallenge
