Women Deliver 2023: Ending Hunger Starts with Women

June 23, 2023

Our plans for Women Deliver 2023

Hunger is not just about food. Hunger is linked to some of the biggest challenges our world faces, including: economic equality, health, education, climate change and the rights of women and girls. Ending hunger will require us to address all of these issues—and it starts with women. That’s why we are a proud sponsor of the Women Deliver 2023 Conference in Kigali, Rwanda in July 2023.

Women Deliver conferences have become the largest gatherings focused on gender equality in the world and we are hard at work ensuring that our values of equity, self-reliance and dignity are reflected in conference programming. We at The Hunger Project have mobilized a hybrid delegation of key gender equality staff from each of our Program Countries, and many of our Partner Countries, to drive conversations at the conference, both on the ground and in the virtual space.

With an aim to advance gender equality and women’s sexual and reproductive rights, WD2023 will bring together thousands of stakeholders and decision-makers. The conference is themed “Spaces, Solidarity, and Solutions” to promote gender equality, feminist movements and women’s empowerment. The conference will also center on intersectional feminist principles to address the issues impacting girls and women, including climate change, gender-based violence and unpaid care work.  We look forward to meeting with global decision-makers to continue the conversation on the intersectionality of gender equality and combating hunger through our sponsorship and participation.

Coming to the conference? We’ll see you there!

A small number of our team will be in Kigali, and many more will be online. We hope to meet anyone interested in partnering with women to end hunger. 

Stop by and say hi! We will be in booth S3 at the Square at Kigali Convention Center.

WD2023 will bring together diverse actors and global advocates to drive change like never before. The conference organizers plan to gather over 6,000 advocates onsite and over 200,000 to participate virtually from diverse global communities. We are looking forward to bringing the experiences of our community partners and local development experts to the table at this event.
