We fund sustainable agriculture projects which make sure families have enough food to feed themselves, with plenty left over to earn an income. We’ve done this since the earliest days of the foundation and have funded 70 food security projects around the world. In that time, we’ve seen climate change making bad situations worse, so we need to help the world’s poorest families face these challenges in the long term. We know the answers are out there and we’re working as hard as we can to find them.
