,,Ending hunger starts with people,’’ says The Hunger Project's motto. Committed to sustainable, community-led development programs, this organization is making significant strides towards ending hunger and poverty worldwide. Their work reaches nearly 16 million people in nearly 15,000 communities worldwide.
The organization's core mission is to end hunger and poverty through community-led development programs. Rather than imposing external solutions, the initiative empowers communities to drive their own progress. By engaging local leaders and stakeholders, they foster a sense of ownership, ensuring that the solutions address unique challenges and aspirations.
The Hunger Project focuses on building resilience within communities, equipping them to overcome immediate hardships while developing long-term strategies to break the cycle of poverty. Their approach emphasizes empowerment and agency, providing tools and resources to help communities become architects of their own development. Additionally, they ensure inclusivity and equality by reaching across social, cultural, and economic barriers, leaving no one behind in the fight against hunger and poverty.
Through partnership and collaboration with governments, NGOs, and local organizations, they amplify the impact of their initiatives. Beyond immediate interventions, the organization advocates for policy changes that address the root causes of hunger and poverty, seeking to mobilize support for a world where everyone can lead a life free from hunger and deprivation.
“We can’t change the world alone. The end of hunger and poverty everywhere will require efforts from every corner of the earth. Find out more about our partners and how we work with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals here,” says The Hunger Project's web.
