World Vision’s efforts to support communities in securing stable and nutritious food supplies are cornerstones of our work. In every community we are helping, we are committed to providing poor and needy children and families with the means to fight hunger and achieve food security.
In our broader response, we are addressing both the short- and long-term implications of the global food crisis in many countries around the world by:
- Providing farmers with seeds and tools to grow crops and raise livestock
- Training farmers on techniques like crop rotation and drip irrigation
- Educating families on the importance of nutritious food
- Helping communities protect their food resources with new storage techniques
- Supporting Food for Work projects that meet immediate needs, and facilitate community infrastructure and development
- Helping farmers to market their crops
- Teaching farmers to protect their land, prevent soil degradation, increase sustainability and productivity
World Vision’s grassroots work with community partners, through our Area Development Programmes, help to reduce the impact of economic systems that exacerbate the issue.
Moreover, at the national and international levels, we lobby for changes to policies and systems that disadvantage the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.
