Hunger is about more than food.
It’s about people.
Top-down, aid-driven charity models fail to create lasting change in the lives of those in need. To achieve a sustainable solution to hunger, we need to flip that model on its head, and afford those living in hunger access to the education and tools needed to end hunger for good.
811 million people are chronically undernourished
99% of people living in hunger are in low and middle income countries
Women and girls account for 60% of people living in hunger worldwide
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-reliance at the grassroots level, empowering women as key change agents, and forging effective partnerships with local government.
Start with women
