Lutheran World Relief works in the Northern Triangle to help families to establish safe and dignified livelihoods and to address the root causes of poverty that compel many to migrate.

We work in partnership with local non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international agencies and foundations, ecumenical alliances, farmers’ organizations and the private sector.  We primarily focus on assisting farmers to increase technical resources for agricultural production, strengthen their farmer organizations and address the effects of climate change.

Lutheran World Relief integrates youth, gender and entrepreneurship into our programming to help communities in the Northern Triangle access and maximize existing resources and provide opportunities for future generations.

In addition, Lutheran World Relief works with emergency response agencies and coordination networks to plan for and respond to natural disasters and other emergencies both on a local and a national scale.
