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.

"In the local VCA (Vision-Commitment-Action)-Workshops of THP, the majority of participants are women and they become empowered to lead their lifes independently, to take action and to influence their communities as self-responsible members. As such, they jointly find their own ways out of chronic hunger and external material dependence. THP joins this process locally, where the people are at home."
