Describe the problem you are solving
In a report published by the United Nations (UN, 2016), 21,000 people (mostly children) die everyday from lack of access to food. That clearly implies that food is not the root cause of these deaths but a lack of access. It further indicates that the amount of food being produced can feed the world population but due to poor distribution and unequal access, many people are dying or suffering while many others who have excess are willing and able to donate food.
How are your customers solving that problem today?
Many of them simply wait at home for humanitarian organizations to bring donations to them, failure to which they just suffer hunger. This affects growth and development especially for children since they are the most affected by this problem. Most children affected cannot concentrate in their studies because of hunger.Most of the parents go and beg in streets in the evening with their children. Quite a number of the children end up becoming street kids while many girls exchange sex food.
