Against hunger, we don’t give up: priority for action

Because hunger has been rising again, we go further by supporting sustainable solutions, such as food self-sufficiency and access to training, education and employment.

We focus on the economic equality and empowerment of women

Empowering women

Almost one and a half million USD are invested in programs aimed at empowering women who act against hunger in their communities. Educating, training, financing and supporting girls and women is critical to creating a sustainable food system that can eradicate hunger!

Access to education, training and employment

In order to ensure a regular income for a decent and active life, we therefore give priority to activities transferring expertise, skills acquisition, training and professional integration, always in connection with food. We also focus on developing work for women to increase their incomes and benefit their families and their communities.

Food self-sufficiency

The idea? To end hunger, if regular distribution of food remains a way to address critical situations, it is not a sustainable solution.
Today, 61% of our activities go beyond food aid.

Food self-sufficiency means to produce food for oneself, one’s family and even one’s community.
Food self-sufficiency is also a national-level issue when it comes to eliminating hunger in a country.
To be sustained, self-sufficiency is a question of education, training and resources, with priority to the women we support, as we are convinced of their considerable role to face hunger.
Convinced that these local cultures and self-sufficiency constitute a food and economic alternative for the most modest families, we support the creation of community gardens around the world.
