The world—our world—portrayed within Foreshadows: The Ghosts of Zero is at times wondrous and exotic, and also dark and desecrated. In many places, full of strife and pain. In a dystopian future, humanity is polarized into extremes of the rich and the poor, the overfed and the hungry. This is but a natural extension of some of the problems we see today. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Organizations like The Hunger Project work to change things for the better—from the ground up. It is a global nonprofit organization committed to ending world hunger through strategic, grassroots partnerships in Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. It works to empower millions of people each year to achieve a brighter future for themselves and their families.
