Elevages sans Frontieres
The organization Elevages sans Frontieres (ESF) is fighting against poverty by helping rural families in developing countries to better feed themselves and become self-sustainable.
By providing animals and training, ESF provides families with a sustainable source of power that overcomes nutritional deficiencies of children and adults, thereby improving their health. Farm products are also a source of revenue for access to education, medical care, to decent living conditions. The use of animal manure makes the land more fertile. Thanks to the production activities, families can fight in a sustainable way against malnutrition, take their futures and become involved in local development. The principles and values that ESF team is driven by, make humanitarian aid efficient, equitable and sustainable. With this approach focused on the long term, families are involved, motivated and supportive. The beneficiaries are mobilizing to the success of a project for the benefit of all. ESF is partnering with DP since 2007 within the framework of community development and cattle breeding projects in more than 10 rural communities in Nagorno-Karabagh Republic.
