Home Economics knowledge positively affects the well-being of individuals, families and communities. Each 21 March, IFHE members worldwide proudly celebrate World Home Economics Day to promote family and consumer issues.
Millions of people worldwide are homeless and lack access to adequate housing. Reasons for homelessness are myriad, ranging from man-made to natural disasters. A person without housing is highly at risk of suffering from poverty, hunger, poor health, lack of access to education, clean water and sanitation. By addressing those challenges and “making home” for those dispossessed, Home Economics can contribute to make improvements in several SDG areas.
