Food Security

My family is in pursuit for healthy food and safe water to drink.

Mission

Famine is one of the most common evils in our communities because of natural disasters, violent conflicts, unstable economic situations, and the lack of fundamentals in management and self-reliance principles. The goal is to support communities by training large groups or individuals on small projects in the processing, production, and conservation of food products.

 

Strategies

Food for All Program

Based on local situations, we identify communities in the grip of hunger in rural areas and in urban areas. We enable them to become self-reliant by efficiently using the natural resources at their disposal. With our partners who are experts in the field, we provide basic training and production tools such as watering cans and seeds. Beneficiaries commit to contributing with non-monetary resources such as sharing land for gardening, helping others, and sharing knowledge of new agricultural techniques they learn from our program.
