THE HUNGER PROJECT IS CURRENTLY ACTIVE IN MEXICO AND PERU IN LATIN AMERICA
The Hunger Project is playing a leadership role in transforming the current situation for rural communities. We are pioneering comprehensive, bottom-up, women centered strategies for rural progress in 4 states in Mexico – including two of the poorest, Chiapas and Oaxaca. IN a phased approach the Hunger Project – Mexico starts with mobilising villages through capacity building and Vision, Commitment, Action workshops.
The Hunger Project works in conjunction with Chirapaq (Center for Indigenous People’s Culture of Peru), and organisation founded by Andean and Amazonian people in 1986. Chiripaq was founded under the principle of reclaiming indigenous identity through the valorisation and sharing of cultural expressions from their communities. The Hunger Project’s funding supports Chirapaq’s Indigenous Women’s Programme and Food Security and Sovereignty Programming.
