Conservation, Food And Health Foundation
As its name implies, the Foundation supports special projects and programs in three primary fields: conservation, food, and health. Conservation grants help improve ecological and environmental conditions in the developing world. Projects should relate to conservation of viable ecosystems and protecting biological diversity in developing countries, and those that train Third World personnel in conservation and protection of resources with an emphasis on technical and scientific training. Food grants focus on sustainable agriculture; address fuel and resource problems related to food production and preparation; offer targeted education and training to small-scale food producers and farmers; and advance new approaches to pest and disease control. Health grants should improve public health with an emphasis on health promotion, disease prevention, and family planning as well as increase understanding and treatment of tropical diseases. The Foundationís focus is on the developing world. Preference will be given to organizations located in developing countries or to those in developed countries whose activities are of direct and immediate benefit to developing countries. It favors grants for pilot projects and special programs that have a potential for replication and prefers to support those that employ and/or train personnel from the developing world. The Foundation does not consider the states of the former Soviet Union or former Eastern Bloc countries within its geographic focus.
