Nutrition without Borders
The mission of Nutrition without Borders is to contribute to reducing nutrition inequalities throughout the world from the perspective of cooperation, training, empowerment, and promotion of the balanced use of the world’s food resources and solidarity amongst peoples of all nations.
Working with the model of cooperation where immigrants themselves participate in the development projects aimed at their communities of origin (co-development).
Empowering health and education professionals on nutrition and food related matters in countries or populations that suffer from poverty and/or social exclusion, or are in a humanitarian crisis.
Informing the immigrant population and the health and education professionals in our setting about cultural diversity, food and nutrition, through which mutual understanding and communication is stimulated.
Supporting other NGOs, institutions and national or international organs in nutritional and food related matters, which are critical to improve the development of every human life in any place throughout the world.
Promoting the balanced use of food resources and the solidarity between populations through consciousness-raising and informational campaigns.
WHAT WE DO
Comprehensive international cooperation projects and co-development aimed at the maternal-child population.
With the support of immigrant associations we work to improve development using a comprehensive approach in their communities of origin to assure that emigration is not the only alternative for achieving the possibility of living a life with dignity.
NSF directly addresses 5 of the 8 millennium development goals: to eliminate extreme poverty and hunger, to promote gender equality and empower women, to reduce child mortality, to improve maternal health and to ensure environmental sustainability.
Training and Education
Workshops and courses on food, nutrition and cultural diversity aimed at professionals working in the fields of health, social services, or education as well as at immigrant associations.
The activities in food, nutrition and cultural diversity were developed in response to a need identified in social and healthcare services created by the incorporation of new cultures in our society due to the social phenomenon of immigration.
The focus of these training and education activities is to facilitate inter-cultural awareness so as to improve mutual trust and communication.
The food and nutritional advice provided by the health professionals to the immigrant population is more effective when cultural aspects of each ethnic group are taken into account.
Awareness and Advocacy
Through our campaigns and actions we inform the society at large about the nutritional and food inequalities which affect the most vulnerable populations.See more
