  • 1.
  • 2. Lesson On The Forty Hour Famine
    • The Forty Hour Famine is a annual charitable event held by World Vision.
    • The event is held in Australia and New Zealand and it is New Zealand’s largest youth found.
    • It was first Launched in 1975 in response to the famine that spread though the northern provinces of Ethiopia.
    • The event is intended for young Australians and New Zealanders to feel empathy for the lack of food that the children in third word countries struggle with each and every day.
    • Last year World Vision’s Forty Hour Famine has more than 118,000 participants and has raised over 2.5 million dollars for children who are struggling in the third world.
  • 3. What Is World Vision?
  • 4. Participating In The Famine
  • 5. Where Do The Funds Go?
    • World vision has a 2.6 billion dollars budget.
    • The following pie chart denotes where the money raised by World Vision go.
    • World Vision sends at least, on average, 75 per cent of the funds it receives overseas. The money does not pass through governments. It is monitored from the time it is donated in New Zealand to the time it is used in World Vision projects.
  • 6. Miranda’s Story
    • Miranda’s face was on this year’s Famine poster and her story was in our Famine book. Six-year-old Miranda has never known her parents. When she was one, her father died, losing Dad also meant losing most of the family's source of income and security. Just one year later, while selling vegetables by the roadside to support her young family, . Miranda's mother was hit by a car and killed.
    • Miranda's sister, Loveness, and her brother, Wesley, were left to look after Miranda, her young niece and her two other siblings. Then Loveness got sick; she tested positive for HIV and died not long ago.
    • Wesley is barely 19 and is doing his best to look after Miranda and her two brothers along with Grace, the 3-year-old daughter Loveness left behind. Wesley struggles to earn enough money for food. Eating breakfast is a luxury for these children; most days they go without.
    • World Vision discovered Miranda and her four siblings huddled in the corner of their run-down house, after rainwater had flooded most of the room.
    • The 40 hour famine is meant to help thousands of children like Miranda and Wesley.
