The human –
the strongest force

against hunger!

Our answer

to COVID-19

We empower people
to break the cycle of poverty.

 

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 are often

most affected.

FACT # 1:

Women make up almost half of all farmers in the world.

FACT # 2:

Nevertheless, 60% of the people suffering from hunger in the world are women.

FACT # 3:

If women farmers had access to the same resources as men, there could be 150 million fewer starving people in the world.

Ending Hunger starts when
you empower people.

 

690 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 work where it matters.

 

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.
