Food : the villagers rear animals which help to produce food or are a source of food
There is no shortage of food in the global village but the food isn’t divided equally………
50 people do not have a reliable source of food and are hungry some or all of the time
20 other people are severely undernourished
Only 30 people always have enough to eat
In the global village:
75 have access to safe water in their homes or within a short distance
25 have to spend a large part of each day getting water
60 have access to adequate sanitation
40 do not have access to public or household sewage disposal
68 breathe clean air
32 breathe air which is polluted
Schooling and Literacy
Of the 38 school-aged villagers, only 31 attend school
Of the 88 people old enough to read, 71 can read at least a little but
17 cannot read at all
More males are taught to read than females
If all the money in the village were divided equally, each person would have about £3900 per year.
However the money is not divided equally….
The richest 20 have more than £5600 a year
The poorest 20 have less than £238 per year.
The average cost of food, shelter and necessities in the village is £2500 to £3000 per year
Access to Electricity
In our global village…
76 have electricity
24 do not
Of the 76 who have electricity most use it only for light at night.
Some villagers have luxuries that depend on electricity. In the village there are:
42 radios24 televisions
30 telephones10 computers
How has the village grown?
Around 3000 years ago only 1person lived in the village
2500 years ago there were 2 people
2000 years ago there were 3 people
1000 years ago there were 5 people
500 years ago there were 8 people
350 years ago there were 10 people
200 years ago there were 17 people
100 years ago there were 32 people
In 2002 there were 100 people
The village in the future?
The rate of growth of the global village means that there will probably be 250 people in the village by the year 2100.
This is an important number as many experts think that 250 is the maximum number of people the village can sustain.
