“One human Family, Food For All” campaign of Caritas confederation to end hunger by 2025 and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are working globally towards the aim to eradicate hunger by 2030.

The primary focus of SAFBIN is to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2 “Zero hunger”. It also contributed to SDG1 “No poverty”, SDG 5 “Gender equality”, SDG10 “Reduced inequalities”, SDG12 “Responsible consumption and production”, SDG13 “Climate action”, SDG15 “Life on land” and SDG17 “Partnerships for the goals”.

Caritas organisations are members of Caritas Internationalis in Rome which is global confederation of 165 organisations working in humanitarian development and humanitarian emergencies.

We are a group of eight national Caritas Organisations of Austria, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Luxemburg, Italy and Switzerland who have come together to work with the Smallholder farmers of South Asia. The Caritas organisations in South Asia form an extensive network in their countries. The Caritas structure helps the organisations to have persistent and close contact to the communities. This presence is an important advantage when it comes to understanding their needs and respond effectively.
