Challenge

Hunger stalks the villages because of a host of factors including severe climate change, local insurgency problems and now this Coronavirus pandemic wherein social and economic activities are severely restricted. The need to provide meals comprising Filipino well-loved food is of paramount importance in order to improve the health and the capacity of the individual to withstand diseases. Growing own vegetables in the backyard will also provide women and girls with easy access to valuable food.

Solution

This project will directly provide food support on a regular basis to very vulnerable women and girls and will enable them to be healthy and strong amidst critical shortages of food as a result of many factors negatively impacting local communities. Aside from food, providing vegetable seeds will enable them to have access on a regular basis home-grown food supply.

Long-Term Impact

With access to highly-nutritious food, very vulnerable women and girls are able to stay strong and healthy and contribute to the general well-being of their communities. This assumes great relevance given the very challenging situation already resource-poor households are experiencing.
