"About 805 million people in the world, or one in nine, suffer from chronic undernourishment," said a United Nations report released on Tuesday in Rome. According to "The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2014" report ― a joint annual publication of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP) ― "the number of hungry people decline globally by more than 100 million over the last decade." Despite this progress, however, the number of hungry people in the world is still unacceptably high, the report said. In sub-Saharan Africa more than one in four people remain chronically hungry, while Asia is home to the majority of the hungry ― 526 million people.

It was an ordinary Friday. Courtney Brown, 24, of Kalamazoo, Mich., was busy looking for a job. “I’ve applied all kinds of places,” she says. “Wal-Mart, Target, Verizon Wireless.”
Then she got a strange letter in the mail. “‘We are writing you with good news,’” she reads to me over the phone. “‘We got rid of some of your Everest College debt … no one should be forced to mortgage their future for an education.’”
The letter went on to say that her private student loan from a for-profit college, in the amount of $790.05, had just been forgiven outright by something called the Rolling Jubilee.
Since November 2012, Rolling Jubilee has purchased and eradicated about $15 million worth of debt arising from unpaid medical bills. Today, the group announced that it has erased $3.9 million in private student loans, including Courtney Brown’s and almost 3,000 other students of the for-profit Everest College.
