Nahed Kayed, Palestinian olive farmer. "I benefit from my relationship with Simha [Israeli olive oil producer] because he is an experienced farmer. We exchange experiences farmer to farmer, away from politics. The land is our life. It's everything. We were born on it, lived and grew on it, and we will die on it. Our dream is to educate our kids, plant our land, and live in peace."

FREEDOM FROM HUNGER: Agriculture

Our research shows that 81 percent of agricultural families in our programs in India and Burkina Faso do not have enough to eat during certain times of the year. In 2015, Freedom from Hunger launched two new programs in India and Burkina Faso with the goal of meeting the financial and nutritional needs of agricultural families. Group-based nutrition education focuses on food budgeting for lean times, what to eat and the importance of growing a variety of foods for home consumption—all aimed at improving their food security and nutrition.
