Current Projects

Do for Children rallies together with the government and other partners to tap into the transformative power of food and nutrition initiatives to end global hunger and poverty. We commit to invest in agriculture, which leverages other investment form development partners. Our contribution to this global effort is coupled with learning and development around specific areas within a whole-of-government initiative bringing together the private sector, national and global research community, donors, civil society and other agricultural expertise in an effort to find a common goal to end global poverty, hunger and malnutrition

What We're Learning

These initiatives increase access to diverse and nutritious foods and improves care and feeding practices for vulnerable groups including under five children, pregnant women, lactating mothers and adolescent girls. These programs are helping families increase production, diversify incomes, post-harvest management and ensure that their children are well-nourished, in order for them to thrive and attain their full potential.
