My project proposal:
Eradicating hunger and ensuring food and nutrition security among the indigenous communities in Southeast Asia.
I am looking for partners to go to the rural indigenous communities, identify their food security and nutrition needs as part of enhancing their holistic wellness and empower them to produce local foods based on their traditional knowledge, culture and surrounding resources. This aims to revive the production of their traditional foods so that they would not depend on the modern food production, which they cannot afford due to their limited income and purchasing power.
