783 million people are chronically undernourished.
That’s 1 in 10 people living in hunger and poverty.
Organisations have been attempting to address this issue via top-down, aid-driven models for years. But these don’t work, because they fail to create sustainable, lasting change for the people living in these conditions.
At The Hunger Project, we’re changing the way hunger and poverty is addressed.
783 million people are chronically undernourished
99% of people living in hunger are in low and middle income countries
60% of the world’s hungry people are women and girls
Ending world hunger sustainably.
We’re flipping traditional top-down models on their heads, and breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty by putting the power into the hands of those affected.
We believe the key to ending this cycle is to empower those in the community, breaking the systems that keep hunger and poverty in place. And our 40+ years of work shows us this theory of change is working.
Start with women
When women and girls have the opportunity to be healthy and educated, society as a whole benefits. By empowering women, we can improve agricultural productivity, increase incomes, and address the hunger and poverty cycle with lasting impact.
We believe building resilient, self-reliant communities is key to addressing world hunger. We help communities forge effective partnerships with local authorities to drive a community-led approach that works, long-term.
A crucial part of our work is empowering people. Over 2 million people have attended our Vision Commitment and Action workshop, with 86% of people now convinced that they can design their own future.
