We believe hungry people themselves are the key to ending hunger.
Once empowered, there is no one more determined, more willing and more capable to end their own hunger. We work to unleash their vision, commitment and leadership so they can lift themselves and their families above the poverty line.
The Hunger Project’s approach focuses on four key areas:
Leadership | Community-led Development | Self Reliance | Women and Girls' Empowerment
WHAT YOUR INVESTMENT CAN DO
£25 could support a community in Africa planting trees, which provide sources of food, energy and income. £50 could support one female entrepreneur with a microfinance loan and training so she can start a small business to support her family. £75 could train a group of 100 people in maternal and child health and nutrition in Africa. £100 could support a group of women to start an income-generating project, like a poultry farm so they can provide for their families.
690 million people are living in chronic hunger 130 million additional people may be pushed into chronic hunger by the COVID-19 pandemic 60% of the world’s hungry are women
Our sustainable approach means that in response to the covid-19 pandemic, we have been able to mobilize over 500,000 local leaders in 13 countries around the world to help spread correct information and support to communities at risk during the COVID-19 crisis, to make sure no-one is left behind.
People across the world are rallying together to highlight how the power of transforming mindsets, leadership development, and training are key to ending hunger and poverty.
We invite you to take action and join our grassroots campaign. Your support helps empower people to end hunger in their communities once and for all.
