Please support our fight against
Staple crops such as wheat, rice and maize are particularly at risk from the impacts of climate change. What all of this means is that millions of parents,
especially those that are dependent on farming, are struggling to access sufficient food to feed their children every day.
We empower communities
We empower communities to bring themselves out of the uncertainty of hunger by combining immediate food assistance (if required) with proven long-term methods that enable families and communities to become self-sufficient, less dependent on short-term aid and more capable of withstanding unexpected disasters such as drought, floods and conflict.
This includes training communities on climate smart agriculture techniques, such as conservation farming, where farmers are trained to achieve maximum yields, while concurrently preserving the environment and ensuring soils remain productive in the long-term. Women are trained on setting up backyard gardens and Income Generating Activities, helping them to increase their ability to access diverse foods. Families are also supported with important knowledge regarding balanced diets and participate in cooking demonstrations that showcase recipes that families can cook, using locally available foods.
Climate change is affecting people’s ability to feed themselves. And when that happens, it is children who suffer the most.
