The Hunger Project works to empower people to end hunger in Mexico and Peru.

Supporting indigenous women

In Mexico, 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 four states — including two of the poorest, Chiapas and Oaxaca.

In Peru, we have been active since 1997, where we work in partnership with Chirapaq (Center for Indigenous Peoples’ Cultures of Peru). Our funding supports Chirapaq’s work with indigenous women, and food security and sovereignty programmes.
