Where does break poverty intervene in the world ?

Naos Village in India

Break Poverty coordinates a three-folded program in India. Financed by NAOS, global player in skincare and implemented by Action Contre la Faim – India, Naos Village aims to save, in urgency, families suffering from extreme poverty and malnutrition and, in the long term, to provide sustainable livelihoods. This global project benefits to 45 000 Indians from a tribal zone and is composed of three missions:

  • Health and malnutrition : care for children suffering severe malnutrition, for pregnant women, awareness of breastfeeding…
  • Development of rationing tools : set up of familial gardens, distribution of seeds, training for farmers, cooking classes, informing families on the constituents of a balanced meal…
  • Water and hygiene : installation and rehabilitation for drinkable water sources and informing residents the adequate sanitary practices when utilizing toilets.
  • Health and malnutrition : mise en place de jardins familiaux, distribution de semis, formations d’agriculteurs, cours de cuisine, sensibilisation des familles à l’équilibre alimentaire…
