Food Security refers to the availability of food and one’s access to it. One may consider a household “food-secure” when its occupants do not live in hunger or fear of starvation. Livelihoods covers a board range of activities and programs designed to enhance self-reliance through non-formal education, vocational and skills training programs, income generation activities, and food for work programs.
Together Livelihoods and Food Security programs work jointly to ensure that each person has the tools and the choice to live in a secure and self-reliant community.
