Changing Climates: Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.

On March 8, 2022, The Hunger Project celebrates International Women’s Day in honour of the courage and determination of women and girls around the world. 

This year’s International Women’s Day theme, Changing Climates: Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow, recognises the critical role that women play in creating a healthier, more sustainable planet. Women’s voices and actions are vital to realising the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Only through achieving a more gender-equal and inclusive world today, will we create a sustainable and equal tomorrow. 

Invest in changemakers.

Give now to join us as we stand with the women and girls leading the way to a sustainable future.

Women are disproportionately impacted by climate change and conflict. Inequitable distribution of roles, resources and power all contribute to building systems that leave women vulnerable — especially during crises when resources are scarce. 

Empowered women and girls, with access to education and resources, are the key to building sustainable, resilient and equitable systems. Women participating in Hunger Project programs leverage agricultural training to build climate resilience in their communities, improving food security and increasing household incomes. Women with reliable internet access learn and share climate mitigation practices with their own and neighbouring communities. Girls enrolled in Hunger Project school programs collaborate to increase school attendance and stop child marriages, creating a future generation of empowered women.

Every woman and girl invested in becomes a catalyst for change.

Women’s participation in sustainability initiatives results in more effective climate action and lasting peace processes. This International Women’s Day, we recognise the critical role that women play in creating a healthier, more sustainable planet. By taking strides to end inequality in their communities, women activists, advocates and community leaders are inspiring change and accelerating our progress towards a more equitable and sustainable world. 

Join us this International Women’s Day in a commitment to breaking stereotypes and re-shaping the gender climate change narrative. Invest in programs that place women at the forefront of their community development and a more sustainable tomorrow.
