150 million children currently don’t get the types of foods that they need to grow healthily and develop their potential.
33% of women in the world in the age-groups for child-bearing suffer from anaemia, increasing the risks of complications in childbirth and birth defects in babies.
In many countries, it costs over half of a family’s income for them to be able to eat five fruits and vegetables a day.
GAIN is working to ensure every person can eat the food they need to grow and develop well.
Our technical assistance to small companies makes more vegetables, meat and eggs available and affordable for families to buy in African markets.
We help millers add vitamins and minerals to fortify flour that will protect against birth defects and anaemia.
By adequately iodising salt, we can protect people against iodine deficiency disorders such as debilitating brain damage and loss of IQ.
We support mothers to give their children the best start in life through good feeding practices.
GAIN promotes fortification of edible oils with vitamin A which will help protect against the effects of deficiencies including night blindness.
Over the past 16 years, we have helped over a billion people to access nutritious, safe, and affordable food. Your support will help us reach a billion more and to fulfill our vision of a world without malnutrition by 2030.
Every dollar you donate to GAIN will have an impact.
