Our Impact

At a glance.

The Hunger Project has a global reach in rural communities across Africa, South Asia and Latin America, encompassing millions of people working to end their own hunger and poverty.

We measure what matters.

The Hunger Project tracks our work over years so we can observe changes in key impact areas within communities, allowing us to understand both areas of success and needed growth in our programs.

We are committed to learning from outcomes to continuously improve programs for the benefit of our community partners. In the 2019, we commissioned an external evaluation for two of our epicenter sites, three years after they had declared self-reliance. The study’s results provide supporting evidence to the effectiveness and sustainability of our approach, as well as meaningful recommendations for how we can continue to improve.

Amplifier effect of local leadership.

Our programs are based on an innovative, holistic approach, which empower women and men living in rural communities to become agents of their own development and make sustainable progress in hunger and poverty reduction.

Trained community leaders, known as animators, in turn train their fellow community members. Thus, when The Hunger Project trains one person, the ripple effect it catalyzes is far-reaching: to their children and spouses, to their neighbors and to the wider community. This is the power of investing in community leadership.

Progress is made when we work together.

It will take all of us to achieve the sustainable end of hunger. That’s why we were thrilled when the UN announced the Global Goals for Sustainable Development, including the goal of Zero Hunger.

Hunger is linked to a nexus of issues – only in addressing them together can any of them be solved on a sustainable basis. Here are a few data highlights of our outcomes and how our partner communities are achieving progress on the Sustainable Development Goals:

Make change happen. Invest in people.
