Equality Food Social Enterprise

More than 800 million people in the world today are hungry and millions more live below the poverty line. The Hunger Project, a global nonprofit, is working to end hunger and poverty in 17,000 communities by pioneering grassroots, sustainable, women-centred strategies, Through our multi-faceted programmes, we empower people to lead lives of self-reliance and end their own hunger and poverty.

Our holistic approach addresses the complex and diverse causes of hunger and poverty. The Hunger Project's programmes improve access to basic services like health centres, literacy training, preschools, nutrition training, food security workshops as well as training in leadership, women's rights and campaigns to end violence against women.

Partnering with rural villagers across Africa, South Asia and Latin America, we build capacity by providing leadership training and skill-building opportunities, mobilising communities, and effectively partnering with local government. To date, our programmes have reached 19 million people.

Together we are creating stronger communities, healthier lives and a more equitable world, free from hunger and poverty.

Organisation details

THP addresses all the Millennium Development Goals through a community level approach which mobilises rural village clusters to create sustainable food sources, improve skills and education, develop businesses through microenterprise, and create effective partnerships with local government to address health, infrastructure and social justice issues (eg domestic violence). THP focuses on empowering women as key agents in creating this change.
