Goal 2: Zero Hunger
End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
There is enough food for everyone, yet more people die each year from starvation than from AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
Whether it’s by teaching better farming methods, encouraging crop diversification, providing irrigation, providing seeds or helping improve sales and marketing, United Purpose helps families grow enough food to survive.
Achieving Food Security
Bernadette’s community have suffered due to deforestation and erratic weather affecting their crops and there simply wasn’t enough food. Thanks to our irrigation project, the community now have a consistent water supply to their crops all year round. Bernadette is not only now food secure but is able to sell the surplus to buy a goat and a pig.
“I don’t think I will ever go hungry again. I am happy now”, she smiles.
