Why Our Work Matters
Freedom from hunger has been described as a fundamental human right, and the African Union Malabo Declaration and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2 call for ending hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition, and promoting sustainable food systems by 2025 and 2030 respectively, and this is a priority of Bread of Life International.
We seek to end and eliminate hunger across Africa. We want to ensure every family in Africa has enough safe, nutritious, and sufficient food. Africa with zero hunger can positively impact the economies, health, education, equality and social development for the people and world at large.
