We are a team of experts working together to help African communities re-learn their indigenous foods and food systems for a sustainable food secure African
We are committed
to ensuring food sustainability in Africa
Years of colonization and marginalization has negatively transformed African people’s livelihoods and affected their production and consumption patterns. Globalized markets threaten indigenous food systems, making them increasingly dependent on externally sourced foods, many of which are highly processed – leading to increased food insecurity and malnutrition.
A market driven agriculture denies families an opportunity to grow or store food for their own consumption. Lack of post-harvest storage systems at farm level translate to crop loss of over 60%.
Our Mission & Vision.
What makes us different?
“Africa is the Mother of Mankind, she is able to feed all mankind”
To foster thriving and resilient indigenous food systems that honor and sustain the cultural heritage, health, and sovereignty of indigenous communities. We envision a future where indigenous peoples have full control over their food systems, reclaiming and revitalizing traditional knowledge, practices, and foodways.
Advocating for Indigenous Food Sovereignty: We engage in advocacy efforts at local, regional, and national levels to raise awareness, influence policies, and support the rights of indigenous peoples to control their food systems, ensuring their voices are heard and their unique needs are addressed.
The organization values the preservation and promotion of indigenous food traditions, recipes, and culinary practices. It recognizes the importance of indigenous food as an essential part of cultural heritage and seeks to protect and revive traditional knowledge and practices related to food.
