The topic of world hunger didn’t become a social issue until the Great Depression in the United States. Malnutrition has been killing children around the globe for centuries, but not much was done about the problem until the beginning of the 20th century. Attempts to eliminate hunger have been going on ever since then, but the rise in food prices has prevented any meaningful solution to the hunger issue especially hunger in children. The United Nations became one of the primary organizations that attempted to eliminate world hunger. The UN established the World Food Program and the International Fund for Agricultural Development; those two organizations are meant to promote food security and sustainable agricultural production in developing countries.
The United States didn’t get serious about preventing hunger until the 1950s. By that time, trying to defeat the hunger dragon was a monumental task. Eliminating hunger has been the battle cry of political parties ever since then, but any real attempt to stop world hunger in children has been an unorganized, half-hearted and slow-action process that hasn’t produce results. More than 3.1 children still die from hunger every year.
But there is hope that hunger in children will be eliminated by the year 2035. That hope is called The Lovaganza Foundation. The Lovaganza Foundation is the brainchild of J.F. Gagnon and his wife, Genevieve. Gagnon is a French-Canadian music producer, composer, writer, singer, and director, and Genevieve is an actress and the producer and director of the “Lovaganza Convoy.” The Lovaganza Convoy is a film trilogy that will be released in 2018. The film trilogy is designed to raise funds for the Lovaganza Foundation and to get other foundations to join the quest to eliminate hunger in children ages 0 to 15 by 2035. The Gagnon’s mission is not to control hunger by 2035. Their mission is to eliminate hunger in children by 2035.
The Lovaganza Foundation has six goals that will eliminate hunger. The first goal is to provide clean drinking water for children around the world. The second goal is to have sufficient food available in every country in the world. The third is to provide shelter and clothes for all kids, and the fourth is to provide the basic health needs for children. The last two goals of Lovaganza are to provide a basic education and to provide safety by taking children out of the war equation.
