About this organization






Our mission is to combat chronic hunger and malnutrition. Bearing in mind the Buddha's statements that "hunger is the worst kind of illness" and "the gift of food is the gift of life," we sponsor projects that promote hunger relief for poor communities worldwide. We pursue our mission by providing direct food aid to people afflicted by hunger and malnutrition and funds to develop long-term sustainable food production appropriate to the beneficiaries' cultures and traditions. We provide educational support for girls and women, so essential in the struggle against poverty and malnutrition, and support women with right livelihood projects so they, in turn, can support their families.
