1) Over 10% of the population in 22 countries around the world still relies on untreated surface water.
2) Malnutrition and diet are by far the biggest risk factors for the global burden of disease.
3) One-third of the worldโs food is wasted every year. But if just 25% of all that wasted food across the globe could be recovered, it would be sufficient to feed all the approximately 680 million undernourished people in the world, as well as many more people living in poverty too.
Creating and sticking to a budget is fundamental to your financial success. Although budgeting isnโt necessarily fun, it is a critical piece of the puzzle. Within your budget, you can prioritise things that matter and ruthlessly cut out things that donโt.
Keep in mind that thereโs nothing wrong with occasionally splurging on the things you like. Just make sure youโre saving for these purchases in advance. If you want to take a particular trip with friends, buy a nice bag or pair of shoes, start putting aside the money for it. Luckily, there are many strategies to help you find budgeting success.
Ideally, a budget should cover all aspects of your life, listing all sources of income and all planned expenses such as home, loans, heat & light, insurance, tax, food, leisure costs, school costs, travel, motor, clothing, cleaning materials, maintenance, TV packages, phone, internet, gifts, vacations, pets and memberships, for example.
