We’re part of a worldwide network fighting malnutrition alongside five other member organisations.
At all times, our aim is to save the lives of vulnerable people affected by hunger.
We work with families and communities so they can build a better future for themselves – safe in the knowledge they can provide their children with enough healthy, nutritious food.
Wherever we act, these are the values and principles that guide us:
Helping people in need
We tackle the causes and effects of hunger and diseases that threaten the lives of vulnerable children, women and men.
We’re committed to helping anyone who’s going hungry in the countries where we work, no matter who they are or where they come from.
Despite challenges such as conflict and climate change, our dedicated teams continue to work in some of the world’s hardest-to-reach and worst-affected places – determined to help those in need.
We stand against all forms of discrimination based on ethnicity, nationality, opinion, race, religion, gender or social class.
We believe in treating everyone with dignity and respect, and championing the rights and contribution of all to achieve a world free from hunger. We act with honesty and strive for openness, equality and justice.
We work in diverse communities, so we know our work depends on recognising the reasons why the world’s poorest and most marginalised people do not have access to enough healthy food. We’re committed to tackling the injustices that lead to hunger.
We aim for total transparency. Whether for partners, donors or beneficiaries of our work, we make it clear how we’re managing all our funds and resources.
Every year, our accounts are fully audited by external partners to ensure we’re using our supporters’ generous donations effectively.
Established in France in 1979, we’re a non-governmental, non-political, non-religious, non-profit organisation.
We’re committed to remaining neutral at all times. However, we’ll always speak out against human rights violations, any form of discrimination and anything that prevents us from doing our work that saves the lives of people living in vulnerable communities.
We’re completely independent and don’t act in the interest of any government or private organisation.
Our own values and principles define us.
We pride ourselves on our years of experience and expertise in the humanitarian sector.
From the start of a programme right through to its end, we make sure we maintain the highest professional standards and constantly aim for continual improvement.
