An estimated 1 billion poor people depend entirely or partially on livestock for their survival. This is why the majority of our projects focuses on animal health, welfare and production and sustainable integrated farming practices. Healthy animals represent the key for a healthy life, better livelihood conditions, improved nutrition and increased welfare. All our actions are based on the principle of food sovereignty, which shall be built, developed and defended at a community level.
Our members implement altogether more than 200 projects in 36 countries in Africa, the Americas and Asia.
