SOS SAHEL is an African-born grassroots organization with over 40 years of experience. Food security and nutrition of rural communities in Sub-Saharan Africa lie at the heart of our actions.
SOS SAHEL is the only organization working from East to West Africa in both the French and English speaking countries, harnessing local potential. Supported by SOS SAHEL’s expertise and approach, local community members are able to identify their own needs and priorities and find sustainable solutions to food security that they can then spread to the rest of the community.
Their projects address challenges to development in innovative, integrated ways spanning a variety of sectors from nutrition, to health and hygiene, to women’s empowerment. SOS Sahel's programs tackle the root causes of food insecurity and poverty in the Sahel, and in the process address issues of malnutrition, poor access to water and sanitation and limited resources for economic and social development of rural families.See more
