FIAN is an international human rights organization that has advocated for the realization of the right to adequate food for more than 25 years. FIAN is a not-for-profit organization without any religious or political affiliation which holds Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
FIAN's vision is a world free from hunger, in which every woman, man and child can fully enjoy their human rights in dignity, particularly the right to adequate food, as laid down in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights instruments.
FIAN's mission is to expose violations of people's right to food wherever they may occur. We stand up against unjust and oppressive practices that prevent people from feeding themselves. The struggle against gender discrimination and other forms of exclusion is integral part of our mission. We strive to secure people's access to the resources that they need in order to feed themselves, now and in the future.
