Welthungerhilfe is one of the largest private aid organisations in Germany, independent of politics and religion. It was established in 1962, as the German section of the "Freedom from Hunger Campaign", one of the world's first initiatives aimed at the eradication of hunger.

What we do

We fight for the eradication of hunger and poverty. Our aim is to render our work unnecessary. We provide aid from a single source: From rapid disaster relief to long-term development cooperation projects. In 2015, we were able to support 7.3 million people with 387 overseas projects in 40 countries. Since its establishment, Welthungerhilfe has supported more than 8,120 overseas projects with around 3.03 billion Euro, 5,746 of which have been self-help projects (more facts and figures in the latest annual report). 

How we work

Help to self-help is our guiding principle; together with local partner organisations we strengthen structures on a grassroots level and ensure a long-term success of our projects. Moreover, we inform the public and advise politics – nationally and internationally. We thus fight for change of the circumstances that lead to hunger and poverty.

We believe in an agri-business sector which is responsible and collaborative, yet competitive and market-oriented, in which communities, local agri-entrepreneurs and international investors alike thrive on innovating the future of cocoa and chocolate.

Sierra Leone

The report focuses on Sierra Leone (SL), which has placed a high priority on private sector investments over the last decade to support agricultural development. The country has experienced a significant increase of (mainly foreign) investments based on LSLAs, yet few of which are in an advanced stage. The study is based on several of palm oil and cocoa sector investment case studies.
