Empowering people and communities to increase food security, adapt to climate change and combat malnutrition.
In the last 20 years, the number of people who suffer from hunger in Latin America and the Caribbean has fallen from 68.5 million to 37 million. Despite progress, challenges remain. Partners’ Agriculture and Food Security programs contribute to global nutrition security and livelihood development by strengthening organizational and individual capacity. Our expansive network of specialized volunteers, development experts, collaborating organizations and local leaders helps us increase food production and income, promote improved nutrition and support sustainable economic growth and environmental conservation across the hemisphere.
Connected with the right resources and training, rural farmers and agribusinesses can improve production and gain greater access to economic opportunities. We mobilize the skills of specialized volunteers from the United States to meet local needs in Latin America and the Caribbean.
In Haiti, poor households often lack food security. Women and children are especially vulnerable. One in every five children suffers from chronic malnutrition. Using a holistic community health, nutrition and livelihoods approach, we seek to improve the nutritional status of Haiti’s most vulnerable populations.
