In the last half-century that the world has been trying to do "development," perhaps the biggest lesson that analysts and aid workers have learned is that cutting poverty is pretty much an all-or-nothing proposition:
You can't, for instance, improve education if you don't empower women; you can't feed people if you don't shore up the international trading regime; and you can't reduce inequality when corruption pervades. FEEEDS and FE3DS help address these challenges.
The FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative and FE3DS partners with organizations, NGOs, universities, foundations, institutions, and businesses focused on helping address these fundamental issues, particularly for Africa.
