Food Security and Nutrition

Independence Begins at the Table

0ur approach for sustainable food security and nutrition is inspired by our motto, to create a self-reliant and poverty-free Africa.


We operate on the premise that all African communities are able to sustain themselves if given the right tools and guidance to achieve the desired results.

We prioritize community-based capacity-building and behavior change in food security and nutrition, including the support of school feeding, community gardening, bulk food storage and preparation, and the promotion of dietary diversity. Our interventions target women, youth, and other vulnerable groups.


Our utilization of indigenous staff, experts, expertise and our broad experience working in the African context facilitates problem identification, analysis and synergistic solutions and results such as:

    Our direct services in Africa, with the support of the United States Government, have allowed us to support local communities by:

      Provision of 60 million school meals. These investments in school feeding and nutrition are intended to boost student attendance and attentiveness, thereby increasing the literacy and overall educational performance of primary school children.


      Supporting 92 school gardens aimed at teaching nutritional benefits of vegetable gardening.


      Training women on the production and marketing of improved seeds, the production and retail of vegetables, and large-scale harvesting, drying, packaging and marketing of caterpillars.
