7 million smallholder farmers. 12 million children. 19 million households. Half a billion dollars in new income.
These numbers are adding up to positive changes. In countries receiving Feed the Future support, both poverty and child stunting are on the decline.
But the numbers are only part of the story.
Smallholder farmers are the heartbeat of Feed the Future and the backbone of the rural economies we work in. Taken together, our efforts are making a difference to ensure that their farms—and families—flourish for generations to come. Read their stories alongside the data in our report.
Leadership and Partnership Make a Difference
Momentum is strong, but there is still more to do. The 795 million people who go to bed hungry every night deserve nothing less than our full commitment to sustaining progress.
Governments, civil society, development partners, and, increasingly, the private sector, must continue to work together to ensure that everyone has enough nutritious food to eat.
