The UN World Food Programme are looking for vloggers to take part in their international video competition entitled Hungerbytes!
They hold the competition every year in partnership with Youtube. It’s open to all but you have to be 18 to claim the prize of a trip into the field to witness the work that’s being done to help chronically hungry people. (Last year 3 girls travelled to Ethiopia and visited one of the agency’s largest food assistance operations.
If you feel you can create a hard hitting, provocative youtube video that makes people think about hunger issues, check out the information at: Hungerbytes! to enter.
This year, for the first time ever, the number of chronically hungry people crossed the 1 billion marker. The chronically hungry have stunted growth of both the body and the mind. Many will die.
If you don’t feel like entering why not just spread the word? I think this is a great use of social media to raise awareness of Hungerbytes! and ultimately, hopefully change lives for the better.
