Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) 2024 Regional Volunteer Program for young Africans

Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) leads international efforts to end hunger, achieve food security for all, and ensure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to live active, healthy lives. FAO, which has over 195 members, works in over 130 nations throughout the world. We believe that everyone can help to abolish hunger.

The FAO Regular Volunteer Programme provides opportunities for individuals to contribute their volunteer actions, where suitable, to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and FAO’s Strategic Framework to support the 2030 Agenda through the transformation to MORE efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agri-food systems for better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life, leaving no one behind.

The Programme proactively and strategically mobilizes broad-based volunteer services of citizens of Members to contribute to end hunger, malnutrition, and food insecurity.
