Poverty alleviation and sustainable livelihood

Almost one in four Africans is hungry: At 23.2%, the population of Africa has the highest rate of under-nourished people. A total of 233 million people is affected by hunger and every third child in Africa suffers from the effects of malnutrition; (e.g. Under growth inhibitions or mental underdevelopment).

According to the World Bank estimates, 47 to 50% of the total population live below the poverty level. This region is thus the poorest region in the world.

The causes of the hunger are manifold: Environmental disasters, war, the effects of climate change, a rapidly growing population, public debt or diseases such as AIDS and malaria.

WACPE FOUNDATION: HELPS AND REDUCES HUNGER AND POVERTY IN A VARIETY OF WAYS:

STRENGHTENING AGRICULTURE

Agriculture and related activities are at least part of the livelihood for many poor people. Support for agricultural projects, from small farmers and especially women, reduce extreme poverty and hunger effectively. This is particularly true when even a small income can be generated from agriculture.

TRAINING FOR FARMERS

Farmers need knowledge for their entrepreneurial skills: The livelihoods of many families depend on their success through income and food security. Topics include: – Technical improvements (e.g., better seed selection, animal hygiene, storage techniques and processing techniques). – Networking and marketing (e.g., strengthening producers and agricultural associations). – Organizational improvements (e.g., business model building, marketing and sales).

Entrepreneurial skills can encompass a large range of both soft and hard skills.
