Food security - Fundación Contra El Hambre

The project Livelihoods for Early Recovery seeks to improve the livelihoods of the most vulnerable families affected by Covid-19 in the areas of work of FH Peru, both in the urban and rural zones in the regions of Lima and Huancavelica, responding to the sanitary, social, financial, and food crisis that has been generated by the presence of this disease among villagers in conditions of poverty and extreme poverty.

The project has three purposes by which it seeks to increase the consumption of foods and the incomes of families: 

To improve family agricultural production in food-insecure communities through training sessions, by implementing vegetable gardens and personalized, face-to-face or remote technical assistance.  

To improve access to diversified food sources through training sessions and the implementation of raising small animals like guinea pigs and laying hens in rural families. With the use of guinea pigs we hope that families can improve their source of protein along with the spirit of solidarity and the provision of primary foods in community kitchens for periurban families. 

To improve financial incomes of families through training sessions and the implementation of women’s undertaking, the formation and reactivation of saving groups. 

The project started in October 2020 and will end in September 2021. The project will be implemented in 138 urban and rural communities of the regions of Lima and Huancavelica, and considers direct work with 1872 families (772 households with training and other 1100 households of community kitchens).
