Human Rights Based Approach vs MTW – Habiba Abdallah

“To eliminate hunger, everyone must be involved” – Bono

Human Rights Based Approach highlights elements as such Empowerment, Solidarity and Campaign. Empowerment comes in different forms; education, training, livelihoods/skills amongst others.

I quote: “Give a person a fish and you feed them a day. Teach them how to fish and you feed them for a lifetime ” Lao Tzu

Move the World as part of its rich programme, inculcates these in it’s sessions that is to encourage the practice of gardening to feed generations.

SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) seeks to eliminate all forms of hunger and malnutrition, especially amongst children. To help achieve this, we all have to be involved.


During Zero Hunger sessions, children are empowered through education, activities such as the Lines of Communication, True or False and Project Grow a Bean. These encourage skills acquisition in these young ones in order to make efficient use of available resources such as using coconut shells in making small gardens in their homes and thus to harvest organic foods. They are also instilled with quality personal and leadership skills by caring for their plants and to see their crops grow as well as teaching others in their communities on sustainable livelihoods.
