Backed up by figures, the conclusion is clear: providing women with better education, training, means of production and financial resources will maximize the possibility of eradicating hunger from the world by 2030!
Over the next three years, nearly US $ 4 million will have been invested by Stop Hunger in programs designed to support women or groups of women. Educating, training, financing and supporting girls and women is critical to creating a sustainable food system that can eradicate hunger!
Access to education, training and employment
In order to ensure a regular income for a decent and active life, we therefore give priority to activities transferring expertise, skills acquisition, training and professional integration, always in connection with food. We also focus on developing work for women to increase their incomes and benefit their families and their communities.
Food self-sufficiency means to produce food for oneself, one’s family and even one’s community.
Food self-sufficiency is also a national-level issue when it comes to eliminating hunger in a country.
To be sustained, self-sufficiency is a question of education, training and resources, with priority to the women we support, as we are convinced of their considerable role to face hunger.
Convinced that these local cultures and self-sufficiency constitute a food and economic alternative for the most modest families, we support the creation of community gardens around the world.
