The core of our work in Africa is based on a holistic development model we call The Epicenter Strategy. The Epicenter Strategy is an integrated approach that was created in Africa, by Africans and currently reaches over 1.5 million people across the continent. 

The Epicenter Strategy

Our Epicenter Strategy unites an average of 15,000 people in a cluster of villages to create an “epicenter,” or a dynamic center where communities are mobilized for action to meet their basic needs.

Honoring Africa’s Leadership

In 1987, The Hunger Project launched the Africa Prize for Leadership for the Sustainable End of Hunger to call forth the committed, effective leadership that Africa desperately needs. The Africa Prize celebrates, acknowledges and honors the accomplishments of individuals who have exhibited extraordinary leadership for the end of hunger.
