“Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life
There must be a combination of food availability, food access and food utilization to reach food security. Food must be available in sufficient quantities and on a consistent basis, has to be acquired regularly in sufficient quantity and lastly it should have a positive nutritional impact on people
Food insecurity has been a general issue in Burundi and 1.8 million people are said to be food insecure
The constant conflicts, fluctuation, the rising demography and the climatic shocks such as recurrent floods, hailstorms, drought and torrential rain are the main reasons why Burundi continues to be food insecure.
With the aim of building resilient food secure households in targeted communities, Help Channel Burundi focuses its interventions on the following activities:
1.Increase agricultural production by promoting good agronomic practices e.g.: soil conservation and access to improved inputs;
2.Improve post-harvest food conservation by promoting post-harvest handling trainings & storage technologies;
3.Increase in food consumption by empowering communities on the benefits of nutritious food.
The targeted communities are the most vulnerable households who are single-parent or single-person with an elderly people living alone, households headed by women and agricultural households possessing a small land or none at all.
