Bread For The World Institute Announces Launch Of "Development Works" Resource

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bread for the World Institute has just released Development Works, a new resource highlighting the benefits of effective global development programs in the fight against hunger.

From debunking common myths to a discussion of the role of the United States in assistance efforts, the seven short essays included in the series focus on answering pressing questions about development.

"Development assistance enables people in poor countries to build better lives for themselves and their children," said Asma Lateef, director of Bread for the World Institute. "Effective development assistance is an affordable mechanism for saving millions of lives every year. It also helps curb the need for emergency foreign assistance due to malnutrition and other avoidable crises."

To illustrate the need for more effective mechanisms, Development Works features stories of real people around the world who are making lasting progress with the help of effective U.S. development assistance. The resource uses examples, photos, and graphics to explain what development assistance does and who it helps.

Bread for the World has long supported global development initiatives in the fight to end hunger and poverty. Development assistance helps communities and nations strengthen their economies and create opportunities. Countries develop successful strategies to combat hunger by using both their own resources and development assistance programs.

"Hunger is not a partisan issue," added Lateef. "We have made a concerted effort to partner with lawmakers across the political spectrum to improve our country's policies so we make more progress against hunger in the United States and around the world."

Bread for the World ( www.bread.org ) is a collective Christian voice urging our nation's decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad.
