THP and 2030 Agenda

A World Without Hunger is Possible!

In September 2015, world leaders, through the United Nations, adopted the most ambitious agenda in human history: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Among the 17 goals, which are focused on people, planet and prosperity, is a call for zero hunger by 2030.

Never before has humanity had such an opportunity. The world is now echoing the call that The Hunger Project declared in 1977 — it is time to end hunger, once and for all.

Based on the fundamental aspects of THP, we must seize the opportunity of the SDGs. We see that our highest-leverage role for the end of hunger by 2030 is to stand on the strength of our programs — the heart of what we do – and build the large-scale partnerships and alliances needed to empower gender-focused community-led rural development everywhere it is needed.

"For me, the Hunger Project means a continuous opportunity to feel and express the solidarity and partnership with the people who live in extreme poverty in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Over the years, huge potential has been released in me and my partners in the affected countries – resulting in sustainable improvements in the quality of life for all."

Dr. iur. Daniel Heini, board member, has been supporting THP for more than 20 years
