Each year, we work to end hunger in about 40 countries around the world. All our international projects fall into three categories:
Food Assistance: Food assistance projects help people who are hungry because of crisis situations like war, droughts, or floods.
Agriculture and livelihoods: Agriculture and livelihoods programs focus on helping people provide food for themselves and their families in the longer term. We work with farmers to increase their yields through sustainable agriculture practices, and help people generate more income from what they grow.
Nutrition: Our nutrition projects reduce malnutrition in families through nutrition education, provision of clean water, and special feeding programs. We give priority to pregnant and nursing mothers and children under the age of five.
Within Canada, we advocate at both the national and international level for changes within public policy that enables families and communities to better feed themselves. Through our public engagement activities in Canada, we look for ways to engage and educate Canadians about global hunger.
