Determinantes of Health: Food Security and Nutrition
Of the nearly 12 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa, more than a quarter of the population suffers from chronic hunger.
CPAR works with local farmers to boost crop production and crop diversification by increasing access to improved agricultural technologies and providing training and education to farmers to help strengthen their farming abilities.
Our programs help increase the production of nutrient- and protein-rich foods and employs Community Nutrition Education to help community members develop healthy diets for the entire household. We also demonstrate how to use improved hygienic cooking practices and how to improve food preservation.
When you support CPAR’s Food and Nutrition program, you’re providing farmers with the tools to expand their crops and grow more food for their families and communities, consequently reducing hunger and improving household health and nutrition.
