WHO WE ARE
According to UNICEF world statistics, in 2018, approximately 15,000 under-five deaths occurred every day, an intolerably high number of largely preventable child deaths.
The organization "WORLD FOUNDATION for PROSPERITY and AUTONOMY" treasures the goal of seeing all of the world's children living with an adequate nutrition and health. With this goal in mind, we support projects dealing with nutrition and agriculture based on the principles of prosperity and autonomy.
PROSPERITY is defined, in a 1995 statement (found in the section of "REFERENCES"), as reflecting the equality of opportunity for women and men; the right to expression in consultation of all in matters that concern their lives; and an unfettered search for truth.

Development which assists individuals and communities in moving toward self-reliance and expression of their innate potential rather than depending on donations for survival.
