BACKGROUND On May 13, 2007 the yearly event Fight Hunger: Walk the World will take place again under the patronage of the United Nations World Food Programme (UN WFP). It was initiated by TNT – the humanitarian partner of WFP – three years ago to engage people all over the world to achieve the Millennium Development Goal: halving the number of all hungry people by 2015 and to end child hunger. Each year, WFP provides food aid to an average of 90 million people, including 56 million hungry children, in more than 80 countries. More is needed. The WFP continues to fall behind in providing sufficient food for those who are starving. Every day 800 million people go to bed hungry and a child dies of hunger every five seconds. Since 2003, the first Walk the World event has grown steadily. In 2005 over 200.000 people raised so many funds, that 70.000 school students could been fed one year long. In 2006 more than 760.000 people joined walking and raising funds in 118 countries and 420 locations over 24 time zones. With your help 2007 can be even bigger !


THE VISION Annual event of a global movement to raise awareness and funds and make it possible to eradicate child hunger by 2015. Organized by the UN‘s World Food Programme and TNT. The Walk is destined to become the greatest-ever annual humanitarian call to action. WFP’s aim for 2007: raise a total amount of 5 million USD to fund WFP global activities aimed at reducing child hunger: projects to improve maternal and child nutrition, and school feeding projects which provide food to attract school students in developing countries.
