At a TEDx event, 11-year-old Birke Baehr presents his take on a major source of our food -- far-away and less-than-picturesque industrial farms. Keeping farms out of sight promotes a rosy, unreal picture of big-box agriculture, he argues, as he outlines the case to green and localize food production.

In Namibia, our work focuses on the children's basic right to access education. Particularly Early Childhood Development (ECD) targeting the most marginalized San communities where a large number of children are totally deprived from accessing basic education. Our contribution in redressing this condition is via the mobilization of local communities and their leaderships, collaboration with government in providing quality educational services including salaries for educators and food for the children, construction and equipment of ECD centers in remote areas that include water and child-friendly sanitation. Palms for Life is grateful for the ongoing collaboration with the government, the participating communities, our generous funding partners and local corporations, all essential inputs for the success of this undertaking.⠀⠀

Our Story

Faces of Hunger (FOH) is dedicated to increasing awareness of food security issues in the United States of America and abroad through film. We are looking for critical discussion and responses to the social and political structures surrounding food insecurity, quality and waste. FOH was created by Palms for Life Fund, a NYC based non-profit that works globally with organizations on-the-ground to provide access to food, water, education, and sanitation. We have set up mobile libraries for streetchildren in Ecuador, brought literacy to undermined women farmers in Burkina Faso, and built toilets in Nicaragua to improve school sanitation. With a grant from the European Union, we are now providing sustainable, quality services to the most vulnerable children in Swaziland. With regards to the United States, human rights issues aren’t confined to developing countries. In 2015, one in seven Americans experienced food insecurity; up to 40% of food produced in the United States goes uneaten every year; and because of the obesity rate, the current generation of children will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents. In one of the world’s most developed countries, such food issues should not exist. Through FOH we call upon students and filmmakers to explore solutions and shed light on this hidden reality.
