What Drives Us?

Hunger impacts everything.

For communities across South Africa, facing hunger affects their livelihood:

Hope thrives alongside nutrition

Almost half of all childhood deaths worldwide occur in children with malnutrition.

Learning increases with stability

Without the right nutrients, the brain cannot develop properly, resulting in long term effects on learning abilities.

Self-sufficiency leads to growth

As many as 828 million people across the world don’t receive enough nutrition to lead an active, healthy life, or provide for themselves and their families.
