Empowering people to
end their own hunger
and poverty.

Because everyone deserves to lead a healthy,
fulfilling and dignified life.

 

INVEST IN PEOPLE

You are needed now more than ever.

820

million

people are living in chronic hunger.

60

percent

of those living in chronic hunger are women.

3

million

children under five die from malnutrition annually.

We believe
self-reliance
is the answer.

We don’t do handouts because we believe people are the solution - not the problem.

Instead, we partner with those living in hunger and poverty and empower them to transform their own lives. This is the only sustainable solution.

Empower. Mobilise. Partner.

All our programs in South Asia, Africa and Latin America 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.

Imagine you’ve grown up in a village and hunger and poverty is all you’ve ever known - and the future looks like an extension of the past. Interrupting that thinking about what the future could look like is the silver bullet to what we do. We shift mindsets from 'I can't' to 'I can' to 'We can' so that people can see what's possible for themselves and their community.

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.

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 ignorant and helpless. They are hard-working and creative human beings and are the world's most valuable resource.

The Hunger Project is about helping individuals to shift into a mindset that says they can actually solve their own hunger…the first thing you have to do is get an individual to shift their behaviour, and if you get enough individuals to shift their behaviours then the entire village will change.
