Presbyterian Church (USA)
This program is working in the Far North of Cameroon, the poorest and most populated region of the country. For several decades, hunger and poverty, exacerbated by drought and increased insecurity have been major challenges in the area and have contributed to a massive rural exodus.
In order to reduce hunger and improve food security in the region, the program is promoting sustainable methods for increased food production. Cereal banks are also being started in some villages while existing cereal bank management is being improved in other villages. Local partner RELUFA has over 15 years of experience using cereal banks as a strategy to reduce food insecurity.
