Feeding the World's Seven Billion People: A do-able Project

Feeding 7 Billion People

Old people used to say, "Where There is a Will there is a Way." This is the "the state of mind" that we have to maintain in order to feed the world's 7 billion people. I know how to do it. The problem that I have is "trying to convince enough people," and the "right people" that we can produce enough food and then make it available to the people who need it. Notice that I mention "the people who need the food." We all need quality foods, and clean water, to survive. We can survive for a time eating sub-standard foods and drinking impure water, but not for very long.

I am particularly concerned about those people in the global community who have too little food to eat, and only impure drinking water available to them. It is very good that many of the world's people have adequate foods available to them and good sources of drinking water.

"Feeding the Worlds Seven Billion People" is a project that I have launched under the care of the nonprofit organization "Mamushi Nature Farm Initiatives, Inc." (We can call it Mamushi for short). We will have to be creative, persuasive, and community orientated in order to be successful with a project of this magnitude which involves the global community in its entirety.

The stage is set. We are prepared to move on the implementation of the mission. The vision is an ingenious one that will succeed in feeding all the world people. The plan is a 5 year plan but it will probably take 10 years to fully implement given the present economy with is rather sluggish presently. The infrastructure is not in place and it will take some time to lay this foundation but not very much time.

The funding of the "Feeding Seven Billion People" will have to come from the people of the world. The foods produced by the Feeding the Seven Billon People project will belong to the people of the world, therefore the money to run the program must come from the people of the world. No governments will be asked to contribute to this effort. We will take help and money from where ever it comes, to be used for the funding of the effort. But our program is not a government program.

It all that you have is a few coins or can send only a little money to the effort, please do send it. Mail your contribution to Mamushi Nature Farm Initiatives, Inc., 1358 Coleman Road, Franklin, Tennessee 37064. If you do not understand the purpose of this effort or mission, or do not have "the heart" to support a mission such as this one, then do not send any money or give the program any support. We only want those people who believe in giving, and those who want to help feed the world's people, to participate. This is a serious effort and requires commitments from serious people. "As you go, Peace."

If you have a "do-able" plan for feeding the people of the world, it's going to take a lot more than small donations. It needs, as you say, "serious commitments from serious people." That's not something you will get via asking for contributions on Hubpages. That is not a serious effort.

You either need a government grant or the support of large philanthropic foundations (such as Bill and Melissa Gates' group). Whether you opt for the government grant or funding from a foundation, you will need a thorough written plan added to a formal application.

Good luck!

Thank you for your input. Yes, you are correct up to a point. Yes, it will take "heavy hitters" like Bill and Melissa Gates and other rich people to reach a fully successful goal in the long run. But organizations like the the "March of Dimes" and others that you have not heard of probably, have always taken small donations, sometimes "very small donations" and have applied the money well and have accomplished something.

The last thing we need, as we grow, and as we make a difference, is pessimism, or pessimistic people who will try to discourage us even before we get started.

Actually, we are off to a good start already because we have intelligent, persistent people working with us who do not listen to pessimistic people. With pennies, we purchase seeds to raise corn, tomatoes, beans and other plants. With a few dollars we purchase goats and sheep to help those who have no animals. We do a lot with nothing, sometimes. We have a written plan and we have a method that works. We use hugpages and other methods of communications to get the word out to people telling them how to get involved if they want to help us. Nobody has to help us if they do not believe in what we are doing and how we are doing it.

Your best bet to help us is to leave us alone. Tend to your own business and stop trying to discourage people from doing good. It is people like you who are responsible for the world's problems in the first place. We certainly do not need your help, and we don't want your help.

Thank you. And Peace be unto you as you go.

I did not mean to be discouraging; rather, I made a suggestion I felt was valid. I'm sorry you viewed it in such a mean-spirited way.

I am not "...responsible for the world's problems in the first place," as you wrote. You don't know me, you don't know what I've done in my life, and now that I've experienced this side of you...I don't want to know you.

Your last line was rather hypocritical after you "bashed" me in the previous paragraph.

What we do is difficult work. We watch people go hungry, up close. We watch people drink dirty water because that is all they have to drink. With very little money we make some difference in people lives. No, we do not help all the world's people, all at once, because we don't have the means to do so. We help one human being at a time. Of course we need large amounts of money that you know that the billionaires have to give away, but that comes with time. Believe it or not, there are other billionaires out there besides the Gates and they know about us. They are looking, watching to see if we mean business or will give up when the going gets tough.

Your are correct. I do not know you. I do not know what you have done with your life. And I am sorry for getting upset with you so quickly. But I sensed that you came across in a negative manner. I see that I could have been wrong about you and I should have been more patient. But I am sick ( was in the intensive care unit, last month, I went in or the 11th of June, I lost a lot of blood from a GI bleed. I am back in my office now, working, trying to do the work of this nonprofit organization.

Listen, I was wrong to come across to you the way I did, so quickly. I am sorry for doing it. And I am asking for your forgiveness.

Now, I hope that you can forgive me, so that I can put this event behind me and get on with my work.

God bless you. I wish you Peace and Happiness. And I thank you for forgiving me for making a mistake.

Very sincerely,

Dr. Haddox

Dr. Haddox...I'm sorry if my initial comment seemed negative to you, and also that I reacted to your comment with harshness. Why don't we simply call it a mutual misunderstanding and mutual forgiveness? I saw the fan mail that you wrote, but do not believe those sentiments should be displayed publically. Therefore, I'll thank you for your willingness to do so, but it isn't necessary.

I wish you much success with your work and hope your health improves.

Sincerely, Jaye

Hello Dr. Haddox, I have thought about this a lot during my life. This planet has so much, more than enough, for all of our people. Every study I have made seems to show that when all the inhabitants of an environment are healthy, the environment for all inhabitants improves. One would think that (even in a totally self-serving way) this would be understood. I have heard (seemingly intelligent, well-educated people) say they don't want to pay for schools because they don't have children, or because they pay for private education. Do they not get that we are educating the people who will later be in charge? Anyway, sorry, a bit off the point! Yes, we need to feed the people-- give them the education and resources to feed themselves. Your hub is heartfelt, and I agree that clean water is a priority.

Your comment is direct, true, and addresses the problem in a very intelligent manner. I am truly proud of you and you thinking on this issue. Thank you, for your kind remarks and for your sincere support for my work. Regards, Dr. Haddox
