Our Realigning Agriculture to Improve Nutrition (RAIN) program aims to prevent maternal and child malnutrition among the rural poor through a sustainable approach that combines agriculture and nutrition.

Concern’s programs are also helping to reduce the vulnerability of communities to natural disasters such as flash floods. By clearing over 300 miles of canal to open up more land for agriculture, thousands of people are now protected from flooding and have the ability to grow more food.
