1) In the first paragraph, you should clearly explain the ways that hunger affects human and societal development. The basic question here is, Why should we care whether others go hungry? What are the effects of world hunger on the population as a whole?
2) In the second paragraph, you should clearly explain ways in which non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are addressing this issue. What are some of the ways that faith-based organizations are seeking to make a difference … and what motivates them to do so? What are some of the structural changes that these NGOs are fighting for, and why? What leads faith-based organizations to be involved in addressing hunger issues?
3) In the third paragraph, choose a religion (one of those we have studied in this course). Explain how this particular religion would address world hunger. Do the teachings of the religion you have chosen lead its followers to try to be involved? Or does the religion you chose see hunger as a “fact of life” that needs to be accepted? Be specific about how the teachings of the religion you chose would address this issue.
4) In the third paragraph, you will do the same thing—with a second religion. Choose another religion that we have studied this semester and assess how that religion views the issue of world hunger. Ideally, this will be a religion that has a different perspective; either
(a) it sees the issue in acompletely different way, or (b) it has very different reasons for the perspective that it has adopted.(Making sure there is a clear difference will make the last paragraph easier.)
5) In your final paragraph, you will explain the differences between the approaches that you have identified in the previous paragraphs. What are the fundamental differences in these two religions that lead them to view the issue of world hunger as they do? And which of them seems to be the way that we ought to think about this issue? Which of the two religions that you chose seems to have the better approach? Explain why we should prefer one perspective to the other.
