The World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH), "a program of the American Soybean Association (ASA), brings the benefits of U.S. soy protein to developing countries where it can make a difference in lives today and in the future. Over 800 million people worldwide, including 200 million children are undernourished. Soy is well suited to provide the protein, calories and other nutritional needs of such people.

"The creation of WISHH in 2000 by U.S. soybean growers showed their concern for the undernourished around the globe. Since its creation, WISHH has been enhancing the protein intake of many nations through market development, humanitarian assistance, education and research. The work of WISHH is now being enhanced by the World Soy Foundation, A Program of WISHH, a 501c3 charitable organization that will continue the important humanitarian endeavor and bring new partners and stakeholders to the effort.

"WISHH also understands that developing nations of today are tomorrow's customers for U.S. soy. All of the top 10 export countries for U.S. soy is a current or former recipient of U.S. foreign aid assistance." [1]
