SHF Food Bank is a project aimed at reducing the extreme hunger experience by over 50% of Nigerians as well as developing sustainable model to provide them with sustainable source of income to reduce poverty.
This project cut across all communities in Kaduna and hopes to expand according to resources and needs. It is our hope that by 2030, Nigerians within our reach would have gone out of extreme hunger and cross the poverty line.
According to AfDB 2018 Nigeria Economic Outlook, about 152 million Nigerians live on less than $2 a day. This represents about 80 per cent of the country’s estimated population of 190 million. The rising hunger in Nigeria today is affecting many children and parents and has threatens their survival, development and wellbeing. Nigerians living in extreme poverty account for over 50% of its population and fearfully these figures will rise by the year 2030 if nothing is done. Also, statistics has it that over 108 million Nigerians are homeless this means these groups of people have no decent jobs, cannot afford food or quality education or good health care. The alarming figures of Nigerians who have no access to clean water serve as a deterrent to the health of the public amongst many other reasons affecting our health.
SHF’s fight to End Extreme Hunger (SDG2) is in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 1, 2 and 10.
We hope to achieve the following goals on the completion of this project:
• End extreme hunger
• Reduce poverty
• Improve individual productivity
• Improve community productivity
• Reduce social vices in the society
• To take people out of poverty one person at a time
• To mobilize and provide support to indigent families in our communities.
• To train and empower them with sustainable income opportunities through skills acquisition programs and sustainable agriculture.
