Hunger Relief Africa is empowering and encouraging food and agriculture investment in food affected and marginalized communities in the targeted areas of operations.

Food security and livelihoods are intertwined, and their importance is paramount in the global developmental agenda. Within the African context, these issues are deeply-rooted, given that agriculture forms the bedrock of many economies on the continent. Africa is a continent rich in agricultural potential, however, it has paradoxically become a net importer of agricultural products over the last three decades. Despite agriculture contributing between 20 to 60 percent of GDP and employing 54% of the labor force in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), about 73 million people are acutely food insecure. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Economic Research Service’s (ERS) International Food Security Assessment (IFSA) analysis reveals that in 2021, nearly 1.2 billion people were estimated to be food insecure, an increase of 291 million from 2022. This sharp rise in global food security was experienced due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Sub-Saharan Africa region accounted for 20.6 percent (60 million) of the additional food insecure population.

As we look towards the horizon of 2024, it is critical to understand how climate change, urbanization, science, technology, and innovation might shape Africa's food security landscape. Climate change poses significant challenges to agriculture and food security, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa where small-scale farmers bear the brunt of these impacts. With the global population rising, climate change threatens efforts to achieve food security amid increasing urbanization and population growth. Researchers suggest sustainable practices like urban agriculture as a viable solution for enhancing food insecurity resilience and promoting sustainable food systems. The Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa – 2024 (STISA-2024) recognizes that science, technology and innovation (STI) provide opportunities for addressing constraints to agricultural transformation in Africa. Mechanization and digitization have been identified as accelerators for the transformation and advancement of inclusive food systems.

As per the USDA report, while progress has been made, challenges remain. For instance, although 35 out of the 76 low-and middle-income countries studied are projected to achieve food security by 2024, it's worth noting that a considerable proportion of these countries are located outside Africa. In Sub-Saharan Africa, despite some improvements, the number of food-insecure people is projected to decline only slightly by 2024. The intensity of food insecurity in this region is anticipated to lessen by then but still remains a lingering concern.

Conditions continue deteriorating across East Africa, where 7.2 million people are at risk of starvation and another 26.5 million face acute food insecurity. At least 12.8 million children in the region are acutely malnourished. The numbers are stark reminders of the larger issues at hand and indicate the urgent need for effective interventions such as the Agricultural Micro-Grant Support program. In light of these findings, there's an urgent need for rigorous interventions that consider novel approaches such as precision agriculture for pest control, urban agriculture for sustainable farming practices, and harnessing STI solutions. As Africa strides towards 2024, the interplay of these factors will undoubtedly shape the trajectory of food security and livelihoods on the continent. Therefore, fostering a robust synergy between agricultural practices, climate action, and technological advancements is essential for a food-secure Africa.

Hunger Relief Africa carries out a comprehensive evaluation by collecting and analyzing key data on local assets, resources, and livelihoods strategies to determines what factors are driving hunger in a given locality. Our research teams are trained to interact directly with community members to better understand local conditions and create a collaborative plan of action.

In collaborations with different partners and government, Hunger Relief Africa prepares to responds when disasters destroy infrastructure and food supplies, and or when drought disrupts food production. We fledge to responds with distributions of food, cash, and other items to prevent hunger in the short-term and ensure that crops can be replanted and livestock restocked in the future.

Hunger Relief Africa has initiated a groundbreaking program to help vulnerable families regain their losses and attain self-sufficiency. This strategy formed in collaboration with local community, is meticulously designed to provide micro-grant support considering the specific contexts arisen from various natural calamities. The support includes but is not limited: - the provision of seeds and tools for agricultural recovery, livestock and veterinary services and small business assistance.

Partnership with the private sectors to increase access to locally produced, healthy food for low-income individuals and families. Exploring Corporate Philanthropy Opportunities (CPO) for donations and charitable food organizations.

Placement of recently graduates into jobs as interns or volunteers for a maximum period of six months working either in Headquarters office or in the field at the established food distribution centers across the country; identifying and exploring the relationships within the four major root cause areas of hunger such as income /jobs, Housing, Education and Health; and increase volume of food service contracts for the Production of home grown community Kitchen program
