The Right to food
The cartoon book and activity guide “The Right to Food: A Window on the World”, produced by WAGGGS and FAO, are about the right of every human being to be free from hunger and the responsibility of all members of society to respect, protect and promote that right.
The book is presented in a simple and understandable style that is appealing to young people. The illustrations, drawn by Girl Guides and art students from Brazil, Canada, India, Indonesia, Italy, Jordan, Sierra Leone and Uganda, convey national differences in culture, lifestyles, food habits and living conditions.
The set of materials is available in six languages in both hard copy and electronic formats.
The cartoon book consists of an introductory section providing an overview of selected right to food issues, and eight separate stories, that illustrate how people in every country can work together to overcome problems. All of the stories are about making sure that all people, no matter what their cultural, economic or social situation, can get the food they need.
The activity guide provides simple teaching tools to make learning interesting and fun, suggests activities to carry out and additional information for Leaders to use when helping groups learn about hunger and the right to food.
