We believe hungry people themselves are the key to ending hunger. In partnership, we unleash their vision, commitment and leadership so they can feed themselves and their families, and end hunger for good in their communities.
Women make up almost half of all farmers in the world.
Nevertheless, 60% of the people suffering from hunger in the world are women.
If women farmers had access to the same resources as men, there could be 150 million fewer starving people in the world.
Up to 828 million people do not have enough to eat. Through a women-centered and community-led approach, The Hunger Project works to end extreme hunger and poverty by 2030, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030).
We reach people in Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America.
Rather than making small contributions at the periphery, The Hunger Project works at the heart of the problem – building self-confidence at the grassroots level, empowering women as key agents, and forging effective partnerships with local government.
THP Switzerland primarily supports projects in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique and India.
