PRINCIPLES OF ACTION
We work with a model of cooperation in which the locals participate in the development projects benefitting their local communities (codevelopment). We advise health and education professionals in nutrition and food related matters in impoverished areas which may also entail social exclusion, or be produced within the context of humanitarian crisis. We inform citizens and health and education professionals through our various forms of media about key nutritional aspects and cultural diversity which are interpreted through mutual understanding and by facilitating communication. We support and cooperate with other NGOs, institutions, national and international organizations, in nutritional and food-related matters, which are critical for the development of every human life in any part of the world. We promote a balanced use of food resources and solidarity between populations by means of informational campaigns that raise awareness on food security and basic human rights. The vision of Nutrition without Borders is to become a reference organization in the introduction of new technologies and applications adapted to the needs of disadvantaged populations, helping to achieve a good nutritional status by means of a correct diet that’s adapted to differences in cultures and societies with the firm belief that food access is a universal right.
