Water and Food are Human Rights that nearly 900 million of our fellow human beings are not receiving.

The Award for the Humanitarian Water and Food project that shows sustainability, innovativeness and potential will be presented in Copenhagen, Denmark in August 2009.

When we can send a man to the moon, surely we can feed everyone? And we can do it in a sustainable way. Studies show that when nations have peace, water and food, births per woman reduce as well, relieving population pressure.

If you know of any project that may qualify for the prize, please direct them to the web page of the Award,
http://Waterandfoodaward.org; the application documents can be downloaded at http://www.avbp.net/docs/HWAFA_applicationKit.pdf.
