Deafal

Deafal’s vision

Regenerate soil to regenerate societies. Social and natural communities evolve through the recognition of human dignity and the harmonic interaction between rural and urban areas.

Our mission

National and International Cooperation: diversity as an asset and exchange of experiences as a method.
Deafal promotes and disseminates research, training, experimentation, and application of innovative methodologies in agronomic, economic and social fields for the production of an accessible and healthy food to generate a fairer society.

Deafal (European Delegation for Family Farming in Asia, Africa and Latin America) is a non-profit Non-Governmental Organization born in 2000.
Deafal operates in the rural development sector with the following goals:

  • Empowering the most vulnerable categories of society –particularly small scale farmers – in the global South as well as in the North in a logic of mutual cooperation South-South and South-North, besides the North-South one;

  • Acting in defence of environmental sustainability and biodiversity preservation in the South and North of the world;

  • Promoting food security and food sovereignty in the South and North of the world. 

Deafal collaborates to improve the livelihood of small farming communities through the adoption of a sustainable agriculture, the preservation of biodiversity and of natural ecosystems. It aims to subvert unfair food production system through the collaboration, rather than subordination and competition, among different regions of the world.

This is why Deafal promotes Regenerative and Organic Agriculture, with the aim to boost the farmers’ self-sufficiency.

Deafal is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, by Lombardy Region and the Citizenship Committee for International Cooperation of Rome; is moreover, accredited by Marche Region. Deafal is member of CoLOMBA (network of NGOs in Lombardy) and, through this, part of the Italian NGOs Association.
