About Agriculture Program
To increase food security through more food production and better income for farmers, especially women, we support sustainable farming techniques, storage, processing, and access to market. Food security exists when all people at all times have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. Our focus is on the four pillars of food security: food availability, access to food, utilization and stability.
The nutritional dimension is integral to the concept of food security. To improve nutrition for women and children, UPENDO promotes healthier diets, producing fruits and vegetables at home, and increasing access to clean water.
