Action against Hunger (Acciòn Contra el Hambre)

“Action against Hunger” is an international humanitarian organization that fights against the causes and effects of hunger. We save the lives of malnourished children. We guarantee families access to safe water, food, training and basic health care. We also work to free children, women and men from the threat of hunger. In Spain, we facilitate access to employment for vulnerable people as a tool for the elimination of exclusion, poverty and, ultimately, food insecurity.

In 2013, we implemented a new key action point based on Employability. Our goal: to facilitate access to the job market for people at risk of social exclusion. Our aim is to facilitate access to the job market for people at risk of social and occupational exclusion by strengthening access to employment and entrepreneurship programmes from NGOs and other actors that have the aim of fostering the social and occupational inclusion of vulnerable individuals.

Our intervention strategy in Spain:

  • Promote the professionalisation of the sector’s human resources
  • Advice and mentoring for strengthening programmes that deal with improving employability and entrepreneurship
  • Facilitate work within a network made up of actors that are all part of the social inclusion ecosystem, in order to share information and create areas of cooperation between the organisations
  • Promote social transformation by providing solutions to social problems
