Food Security And Nutrition

N

Focusing on Food

The U.N. has declared the global hunger emergency the largest humanitarian crisis since 1945. afifa foundation’s food and nutrition security work spans from responding to emergencies to enabling people to sustainably increase productivity, access markets, build resilience to climate change, and ensure the nutrition of their families.

Cultivating Food Security

Since sending the first Package in 2016, we’ve worked with governments and communities to ensure sustainable food security for the world’s poorest people.

Agriculture

To increase food production and income for farmers — especially women — we support sustainable farming techniques, smart water use, market access and innovation in volatile climates.

Nutrition

To improve nutrition for women and children, afifa foundation promotes healthier diets, producing fruits and vegetables at home, increasing access to clean water, and working with governments to improve health and nutrition services.

Sustainable Economies

Earning a living requires more than just hard work. We link smallholder farmers in poor rural communities, the majority of them women, with the goods and services needed to run their businesses and provide for their families.

Focusing on Food

afifa foundation’s food and nutrition security work spans from responding to emergencies to enabling small scale farmers, fishers, and pastoralists to sustainably increase productivity, access markets, build resilience to climate change, and ensure the nutrition of their families. We emphasize the role that smallscale food producers play in ensuring the food and nutrition security of all – and particularly emphasize the role and rights of women as food producers and consumers.

To achieve our goal of having 1 million poor and vulnerable people improve their food and nutrition security and their resilience to climate change, afifa uses the Strategic Framework She Feeds the World. This works to strengthen gender equality and women’s voice, promotes inclusive governance, and works to create resilience. We look at the four pillars of food and nutrition security: access, availability, utilization, and stability. We also follow the SuPER principles in our work.
