Hunger is about more than food. It's about people.

783

million

people are hungry.

60

percent

of those are women.

21

percent

of kids under 5 are stunted.

We believe with communities leading we can take on the challenge of hunger together.

Empower. Mobilise. Partner.

All our programs work to strengthen women's position in society, enable communities to take charge of their own development and ensure governments are accountable to the communities they serve. We start by shifting mindsets, and then we empower people with the leadership, skills and knowledge they need to lift their communities above the poverty line for good. 

Who we are.

The Hunger Project is a global movement creating a world without hunger.

We work in authentic partnership with people living in hunger and poverty to unlock their leadership and enable them to become the agents of their own development.

Poverty, Gender Inequality, Conflict and Climate Change are the global challenges we must face - together.

Our impact.

While we are proud of these results, we are even more proud of the individual people that make up these numbers, who overcome enormous challenges every day to transform their own lives.

Women and girls are at the heart of our work, because inequality feeds hunger.

Invest in people.

You can make a difference by giving financially, contributing your skills and time, or getting involved in one of our learning opportunities or fundraising events. 

Individuals living in hunger and poverty are not helpless. They are hard-working and creative human beings and are the world's most valuable resource.
