The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world's largest humanitarian agency and leading organization in saving lives and changing lives, delivering food assistance in emergencies improving nutrition situation of vulnerable people, providing school meals for children and working with smallholder farmers and communities to increase livelihoods and build resilience. WFP received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020 and is fighting hunger in the frontlines of 92 countries with more than 20,000 staff around the world and its yearly budget in 2021 was 10bilIion USD.

Why work with us?

Although rich in natural resources, Guinea faces major socio-economic challenges. The poverty rate is alarming, and 21.8 % of households are food insecure. Malnutrition remains high: 6.1 % of children under 5 are affected by global acute malnutrition, 24.4 % are stunted, and 12 % are underweight.

Rural populations are particularly vulnerable to food insecurity. Among those affected by severe food insecurity, 71.1 % practice subsistence farming. Smallholder farmers comprise the majority of the country’s poor, showing a correlation between poverty and food insecurity. Besides, they have poor access to seeds and fertilizers, production and processing equipment, storage facilities, basic infrastructure and affordable financial services. Although women play a crucial role in agriculture, particularly in food production, they have difficulties in accessing land and productive resources, education, formal employment and income-generating activities. Their work is often unpaid and undervalued. Women make up 60 % of people suffering from chronic hunger, and the majority of rural people living in poverty.

Unemployment is high, particularly among youth and women, and literacy rates are low, with only 32% of the adult population able to read and write. School attendance is also low- 22% of primary school-aged children are out of school. Moreover, Guinea faces major socio-political challenges and the approaching parliamentary and presidential elections increases the risk of ethnic and political violence paralysing economic activities in the country.

The World Food Programme (WFP) has been present in Guinea since 1964 providing nutritious and immediate food assistance to affected populations during and in the aftermath of crises. WFP works in partnership with the Government to improve children’s access to education, enhance nutrition among the population, build sustainable food systems and communities’ resilience to shocks whilst improving their access to profitable and stable agricultural markets. WFP activities also include strengthening the Government’s technical capacities to develop sustainable programmes sensitive to addressing gender inequalities and root causes of malnutrition.
