HUNGER

OUR APPROACH

One in nine people does not have enough food to eat, leaving hundreds of millions of people going to bed hungry tonight—and every night. Hunger is the result of extreme poverty, and it keeps people stuck in the poverty trap. Without nutrition, children's minds and bodies cannot develop properly. Malnutrition compounds the effects of diseases, including HIV and AIDS, malaria, and pneumonia. And it keeps people from fully engaging in productive work and income generation.

 

Hunger is also a problem that disproportionately affects women and children. According to the World Food Program, although women in developing countries are responsible for the majority of household food production, women are more affected by hunger than men because of cultural norms and social structures. Malnourished mothers then give birth to underweight and malnourished children.

 

NCM partners with local churches to provide long-term agricultural programs such as small-scale farming, animal husbandry, and fish farms, as well as nutrition education, to improve health and provide a source of income for families and individuals. Many of the programs are geared specifically for women as a way to provide for children and families.
