FIAN International was founded in 1986 as the first international human rights organization to advocate for the realization of the right to adequate food and nutrition.
They envision a world free from hunger, in which every woman, man and child can fully enjoy their human rights in dignity, particularly the right to adequate food.
Their mission is to expose violations of people's right to food wherever they may occur. They stand up against unjust and oppressive practices that prevent people from feeding themselves. The struggle against gender discrimination and other forms of exclusion is an integral part of their mission. They strive to secure people's access to the resources that they need in order to feed themselves, now and in the future.
FIAN consists of national sections and individual members in over 50 countries around the world. They work as a not-for-profit organization without any religious or political affiliation. They hold also a consultative status to the United Nations.See more
