23 people answered.

Correct answer is: 25%

CARE collaborated with six other leading aid agencies to conduct a field study in communities in western and eastern Niger. One-quarter of these communities said children are dropping out of school because their families left in search of work, the school canteens closed, or the children must work. But, CARE is helping these children stay in school by launching school-feeding programs - where children receive a warm, nutritious meal at school so they don't have to drop out to work for food. Help is desperately needed to continue programs like these.

Ensure the world’s poorest people have the tools and resources they need to adapt to harsher conditions caused by climate change. CARE is on the front lines in the fight against hunger and against climate change. Last year, we helped 10 million people improve crop production, increase income and sustainably manage natural resources. With a real crisis on our hands today, we need your help now. We must make sure poor communities have the information and tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty and adapt to the changing climate. Climate change will have a disproportionate impact on the poorest communities in the world and threatens to reduce, or even wipe out, decades of development. Please take action now: http://www.careclimatechange.org 1. Weather is changing in dramatic ways, from droughts to floods to cyclones, and experts predict it is only going to get worse. 2. For millions of people living in extreme poverty – 60 percent of whom are women – climate change is a daily threat to their survival. 3. They are losing their crops to drought, homes to floods, and families to disease –conditions intensifying and rising because of global warming. 4. We must reduce the rate of global climate change & help the most vulnerable people adapt to new conditions 5. Learn more: http://www.careclimatechange.org
