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 is not divided equally………
50 people do not have a reliable source of food and are hungry some or all of the time
20 people are severely undernourished
Only 30 people always have enough to eat
In the global village:
75people have access to safe water in their homes or within a short distance
25peoplehave to spend a large part of each day getting water
60peoplehave access to adequate sanitation
40peopledo not have access to public or household sewage disposal
68peoplebreathe clean air
32peoplebreathe air which is polluted

Of the 88 people old enough to read, 71people can read at least a little but
17 people 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 ($5710) per year.
However the money is not divided equally….
The richest 20 have more than £5600 ($8199) a year
The poorest 20 have less than £238 ($348.43) per year.
The average cost of food, shelter and necessities in the village is £2500 to £3000 ($3660-$4392) per year
In our global village…
76 people have electricity
24 people do not
Of the 76 people 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 radios 24 televisions
30 telephones 10 computers
Around 3000 years ago only 1 person 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 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.
