Nearly half of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day— with an additional 122 million people expected to join those ranks by 2030 because of climate change.
INMED Partnerships for Children is a nonprofit international humanitarian development organization whose sole mission is to end poverty. Through multisector partnerships and in-country affiliates, INMED develops sustainable systems that build pathways for vulnerable children, families and communities to achieve well-being and self-reliance—breaking complex cycles of poverty for current and future generations. INMED’s programs in adaptive agriculture and aquaponics, nutrition and healthy lifestyles, and economic development have transformed the lives of millions of children and their families since 1986.

Brazil: Sustainability for the Amazon, Security for the World
Today, the Amazon is at an urgent tipping point. Shocking levels of poverty, food insecurity and hunger, driven by rampant deforestation — and magnified by the deadly coronavirus pandemic — are threatening the region’s very survival. INMED Partnerships for Children has partnered with the Sustainable Amazon Foundation to implement INMED Aquaponics® in 9 locations in the Amazon to provide indigenous and traditional peoples with a steady supply of fresh produce and fish, strategies for climate change adaptation and sustainable livelihoods, while protecting critical rainforest habitats.

Jamaica: Food Security and Economic Restoration for Communities Hit Hard by Climate Change
Jamaica’s agricultural sector and local economies have been hit hard by severe climate events, with unemployed food farmers lacking business opportunities, youth discouraged by the prospects offered by traditional farming, and insufficient local production of fresh produce to sustain healthy lifestyles. INMED Aquaponics® is equipping small-scale food producers to grow and sell more food locally, earn sustainable livelihoods and provide economic development opportunities for their communities while adapting to climate change realities.

Help us rebuild our INMED Aquaponics® system, which thousands of children and their families rely on for sustenance in the food-insecure indigenous Amazonian community of Yarinacocha, Peru.

South Africa: Donate Seeds for Hungry South African Families to Plant Backyard Gardens
South Africa is plagued by persistent poverty, hunger and unemployment, all of which have been made worse by the recent global economic crisis, steep food and fuel prices and severe climate events.
