Becoming a partner of Action Against Hunger means engaging your company or your Foundation and interested parties in a responsible, collective approach in the fight against malnutrition.
The company has to act and be willing to respond to company challenges in an efficient way taking into account the different reasons for hunger in the world: poverty, inequality, climatic change, conflict, agricultural resource threats, and so forth.
Our partner policy is aimed not only at funding programs that we have been developing for over 40 years in 49 countries but also in co-building innovative response models supported by the expertise of our activity leaders. By applying our know-how we can multiply the impact of the programs and attain the overall purpose of a world with no hunger as described in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Objectives.
"When you join us you are also engaging with the values that we are fighting for."
Action contre la Faim
Whatever the size of your company, you can help us to respond, at different stages, to the needs of people in the countries where we have operational programs. Each company can play a role at their level within a collective response initiative.
Engaging the interested parties of the company
In 2016, more than 5,500 employees have rallied alongside us: 85% of the employees have expressed their interest to become more involved in the Socially-Responsible Investment (SRI) actions of their company*.
64% of the employees believe that SRI actions improve the quality of their working relationships (same survey). In parallel, 67% of the employees have the sensation that they have not been involved in the action of the company with respect to the SRI action**.
In 2016, 250 partners have joined us in our cause. Out of the projects executed in nearly 50 countries, 14.7 million people have received aid. Your support is essential and it makes our autonomy possible since we choose to invest in research programs destined at improving the performance of our response or intervene in forgotten crisis situations that have stopped being a priority to the international bodies and the media because the people are still in need.
API Restauration, loyal support to Action Against Hunger, decided in 2017 to pass to an even higher engagement level.

More than €200,000 was raised for Action Against Hunger, contributing to the deployment of our operational program in Somalia.
From 2016 to 2018, SFAM is supporting Action Against Hunger through financial sponsorship of the CASAN program (Centre for Social and Nutritional Support) based in Antananarivo in Madagascar.

SFAM’s support is vital to Action Against Hunger since it enables thousands of beneficiaries to receive the best possible all-round care.
Since 2008, Fonds Suez Environnement Initiatives have been supporting different Action Against Hunger programs in the development of their Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene initiatives. For example, in Burkina Faso, funds have been invested in the first project, “Mobilization of local activity leaders in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene”, for fulfilling the Millennium goals in Tapoa: a project with the objective of making a sustainable improvement to the access of drinking water and sanitation contributing to the prevention of severe malnutrition and improving living conditions and, in turn, the dignity of the people. The funds have been used more recently in a Support Program under local management of an ecologic sanitation integrated project in Ouagadougou.
Developing a strategic, co-building, and innovating responsible partnership
The challenges that face society are immense and we must prepare ourselves for new responses funded by alliances.
Through the implementation of innovative, strategic partners, responding to common challenges, we propose to work on tailor-made responses in collaboration with the public and private activity leaders to be able to respond to the needs. Our international presence represented by 7 offices (German, Canada, Spain, United States, France, Great Britain, Italy) and a foundation in India, enables us to preempt global responses and mobilize our network installed in nearly 50 countries.
