We're fighting for food security
Starting with support for rice production and water supply, families have been supported with access to high quality seeds/inputs and introduced to methods of farming that provide greater yields, often learning from one another rather than externally. Through programs, people have learned to grow better vegetable gardens, make money from fruit trees, fish farms and to raise livestock. Besides being a core part of community nutrition programs, food security projects have integrated adult literacy, technical agriculture skills, small business management, small loans and community co-operative groups.
Food Security Projects

This project aims to increase net income from the sale of produce, and grow the rural economy; reduce poverty, and improve household resilience through a market led and value chain approach.
Food Security & Nutrition for All
Oddar Meanchey Province, September 2016 – April 2020
The project expects to positively impact the 2800 households with children under the age of 5 so that they have sustainable access to nutritious food sources all year long due to increased consumption of appropriate dietary foods and providing nutritional health protection practices for young children and mothers.
