Right to Food
The right to food is a fundamental human right.
An empty stomach makes any activity difficult, whether that be work, study or the thousand small things we do every day.
In order to be more effective in the fight against poverty, ActionAid International bases its work on respect for human rights by tackling certain important issues.
Despite commitments taken at worldwide level, more than 100 million children don’t attend school and about 800 million adults, mostly women, are illiterate. Education is also a very powerful tool for solidarity. In Switzerland, we work with schools to develop a greater awareness in young people and children regarding social issues that affect us both at home and as citizens of the world.
