United Nations World Food Programme - WFP Ethiopia
The World Food Programme (WFP) is United Nations frontline agency in the fight against hunger, WFP is continually responding to emergencies. We save lives by getting food to the hungry fast. But WFP also works to help prevent hunger in the future. We do this through programmes that use food as a means to build assets, spread knowledge and nurture stronger, more dynamic communities. This helps communities become more food secure. On average, WFP aims to bring food assistance to more than 80 million people in 80 countries. WFP Ethiopia is working with the Government and humanitarian partners to strengthen the resilience of Ethiopiaâ€™s most vulnerable population and to chart a more prosperous and sustainable future for the next generation. The Country Office also supports programmes that use food assistance to empower women, transform areas affected by climate change and keep children in school. It aims to contribute to Ethiopiaâ€™s five-year development agenda, the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP), through which the Government combats food insecurity.
