We’ve Helped over 3000 Campaigns Raise Over $1M
Food Hunger designs projects with participatory appraisals. What does that mean? Our staff, most of whom are community members themselves, work with each community to identify what development difficulties they face and what local resources are available to achieve solutions.
“In addition to national and corporate leaders, we consult with traditional and religious leaders when designing projects, and we react to local feedback as projects progress. We contract local companies to carry out certain project tasks, such as the construction of a community library, so local firms earn the experience and the income.” Dr. John Makali, African President.
Feeding the nations our priority.
Access to nutrition
Lack of access to nutritious food is truly devastating to children, families and entire communities. With no money or food, many families are trying to survive by eating leaves..
In humanitarian emergencies, we provide cash transfers or cash-for-work programs to help families in crisis buy food and support local markets while also enabling them to make their own choices about their most urgent needs. Every year we reach more than 21 million people with lifesaving programs in 50 countries.
Our food security and livelihoods programs aim to empower vulnerable communities to improve their access to food, income, and markets. We train and build the capacity of small-scale farmers to increase production, and safely store and market their crops.
