The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organization committed to the sustainable end of world hunger.
Our programs in 17,000 communities throughout Africa, South Asia and Latin America are based on an innovative, holistic approach, which empowers women and men living in rural villages to become the agents of their own development and make sustainable progress in overcoming hunger and poverty.
While adapted to meet local challenges and opportunities wherever we work, all our programs have at their foundation these three essential elements:
- Empowering women as key change agents
- Mobilizing communities for self-reliant action
- Fostering effective partnerships with local government
One of our first activities is a Vision, Commitment and Action Workshop, which serve as the foundation of our work, inspiring individuals to move from “I can’t” to “I can” to “We can.” Through participation in our trainings, people set a vision for their communities, and then lay out the actions they will take to achieve that vision.
