|Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger |
Goal 1: Reduce by half the number who
struggle daily for survival.
Nutrition education: World Vision trains parents in the importance of feeding their children food that contains essential nutrients such as vitamins A and C.
Agricultural assistance: World Vision provides farmers with seeds and tools for raising crops and livestock.
Agricultural training: We teach farmers improved agricultural techniques such as crop rotation, drip irrigation, and the planting of trees that will enrich over-worked soil.
Improved product storage: World Vision helps communities protect their available food resources with new storage techniques. In Mali, for example, we built granaries that decreased the annual food storage loss from 30 percent to 3 percent.
Marketing assistance: By identifying and providing resources for marketable products, World Vision helps farmers earn a stable income for their families. For example, we helped Brazilian farmers cultivate and market a crop of organic peppers when environmental changes made it impossible to grow their former crops.
Feeding centers: Following a natural disaster or refugee crisis, World Vision establishes emergency feeding clinics and often provides supplemental food until the next harvest.
