The only way to realize the full potential of any country is to have healthy and strong citizens, starting with children. Counterpart works with local partners around the world to improve the production of and access to nutritious food for children. We support community-led and school-based efforts to reduce malnutrition, implement sustainable agricultural practices and improve food security. We work closely with communities to identify and address the full spectrum of issues affecting food security and community health. In support of UN Sustainable Development Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture, and Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, Counterpart will continue to:
- Increase the availability of nutritious food through community engagement
- Increase the stability of the food supply
- Improve farming techniques to generate more sustainable crop yields
- Increase access to health and nutrition services, especially for pregnant women and newborns.
