Fundación Acción contra el Hambre

Spain

Acción contra el Hambre is a global humanitarian organisation that has been taking decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger for almost 40 years. One of the key goals is the creation of methodologies to boost local economies and markets in low- and middle-income countries, allowing people to be generators of their own development. Since 2012, Acción contra el Hambre has worked in Spain through the Employability and Entrepreneurship Strategy to facilitate access to the professional world for people at risk of socio-labour exclusion. In 2016, Acción contra el Hambre started to work in Vocational Education and Training, towards the provision of a quality education for all, for better access to sustainable livelihoods, and decent employment. Through this strategy and under the umbrella of the European Network of Innovation for Inclusion, Acción contra el Hambre fosters the exchange of best practices and innovation at European level in order to create a more inclusive labour market.
