World in a Village

The World in a Village


If our world could be reduced to a village of 1000 people 

what would it look like?

There would be 

579 Asians

150 Africans

120 Europeans

81 North Americans

61 from South America

6 from Oceana


314 Christians

236 Muslims

143 Hindus

71 Buddhists

71 Confucists and Taoists

7 Shintoists

2 Jews

150 would be of a minor religion or atheist


6% receive half of the village income

16% of adults are illiterate

40% exist on less than $2 per day

40% are malnourished


And who provides honey for this village?

Just one beekeeper.
