How we work

A key goal of our Foundation is to highlight the global issue of food insecurity, and the challenge facing humanity to double global food production in a sustainable way.

And because we believe that smallholder farmers have a key role to play in addressing food insecurity, we work to help them improve their production and prepare for the future in a sustainable way. 

To achieve this, we select projects that favor the use of simple but effective techniques with the potential to have a positive impact on both local farming communities and the environment.

Each initiative selected by the Foundation must respond to several key criteria:

  • An accurate understanding of beneficiaries' real needs
  • Support for the principle of food security
  • Innovative techniques that ensure a sustainable approach
  • Additional environmental, social and/or health benefits
  • Efficiency in project monitoring and in the provision of deliverables
  • Cost transparency and limited non-operational fees

In particular, we aim to:

  • Facilitate change by bringing simple and sustainable technical solutions to smallholders
  • Reduce poverty by helping vulnerable farming communities to increase and diversify their income sources
  • Preserve ecosystems and ensure environmental sustainability through agroecology
  • Act now and for the future through education for self-sufficiency
  • Target positive effects for entire communities, by empowering women and encouraging gender equity

We strongly believe that the combined social, environmental and economic benefits that our projects aim to produce.
