Our international work is divided into six themes: Anti-Trafficking, Clean Water, Emergency Response, Food Security, Gender Justice and Income Generation. We work alongside communities to support projects in each of these areas. We are also responsible for overseeing the transfer of funds for the UK’s Mission Support Allocation (money donated through the annual Self-Denial Appeal).
We support a number of Food Security projects such as reintroducing edible insects into the habitat of rural Democratic Republic of Congo. By supporting communities to make the best use of their land, especially as they battle the effects of climate change, they will be better equipped to overcome malnutrition and lift themselves out of poverty.
Conservation Farming, Zimbabwe
In partnership with local organisation Foundations for Farming, The Salvation Army is training farmers in Zimbabwe in conservation agriculture to ensure they can produce plentiful crops despite the challenge of inconsistent rainfall and drought.
Through the project, small-scale farmers received training on how to use conservation agriculture methods to improve their yields. They were tasked with passing on this training to others in their community.
Reintegrating Edible Insects, DRC
In the rural areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), deforestation has impeded people’s ability to access the nutrition they need to survive. The Salvation Army is training and supporting communities to reintroduce protein-rich caterpillars to help boost diets and overcome malnutrition.
Sustainability is key to this project which is why school children help to grow the vegetation that will become the caterpillars' home, and they learn the value of incorporating edible insects into their diet.
