AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT AND NUTRITION PROJECTS
We work on agriculture and farming sustainable development programmes and projects aimed at ensuring food security and nutrition of vulnerable populations. We aim for these populations to have autonomy in terms of food and to make famine, malnutrition and its effects a thing of the past.
If you wish, you can contribute with your donation to the program of your choice.
