Join us in the mission to end hunger by 2030! Empower people. End hunger.
More than 690 million people around the world are hungry and millions more live below the poverty line. The Hunger Project, a global nonprofit, is working to end hunger and poverty in 13 countries across South Asia, Africa and Latin America by pioneering grassroots, sustainable, women-centred strategies. Through our multi-faceted programmes, we empower people to end their own hunger and poverty and lead lives of self-reliance.
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, 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 16.5 million people and 734,000 people have reached self-reliance.
Together we are creating stronger communities, healthier lives and a more equitable world, free from hunger and poverty.
More about us
The Hunger Project is committed to ending hunger and poverty through sustainable, grassroots, women-focused strategies.
We don't do handouts because we believe people are the solution, not the problem. Instead, we parter with those living in hunger and poverty and empower them with the skills and knowledge to transform their own lives. We believe self-reliance is the sustainable solution.
Empowering women to be key agents of change, mobilising communities to take self-reliant action and forging effective partnerships with local government addresses are the pillars of our work.
