The Hunger Project joins thousands of people around the world who are taking the Live Below the Line challenge to raise funds and awareness for the 1.2 billion people in our world who live in extreme poverty. We are partnering with this campaign in the U.S. and the U.K.

From April 28-May 2, join us in spending $1.50 a day on food and beverage for five days to change the way people think about extreme poverty.

Hunger Project programs in Africa, South Asia and Latin America provide women and men living “below the line” with the opportunity to lead healthy and productive lives, meet their own basic needs and build better futures for their families and communities.

One of the key lessons we’ve learned over time is that it takes people coming together as a community to overcome the challenges of hunger and poverty. In each region where The Hunger Project works, local communities join together as clusters of villages. Working together enables community members to have a stronger voice and demand access to human and financial resources from local government. Our partners are the authors of their own development and are achieving lasting progress in their communities in areas of health, education, nutrition, family income and gender equality.

Our staff team will promote our theme of “community” throughout our involvement in Live Below the Line. Whether it’s through group trips to the grocery story, recipe swapping, big group meals, and lunches with partners, we will face this challenge together and invite you to do the same!

As a global community, we share a vision of a world where every woman, man and child leads a healthy, fulfilling life of self-reliance and dignity. We invite you to join us, not as donors or supporters, but as investors: stakeholders who are standing in full partnership with people living in conditions of hunger and poverty.
