The Hunger Project’s goal is to end world hunger. Our approach is different – we see people living in hunger as the solution, not the problem. We shift the mindsets of women and men so they transform into leaders for the sustainable end of hunger. Then, through our programs such as education, microfinance, agriculture and health, we empower people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to break the poverty cycle themselves.
We’ve always believed the end of hunger is possible – and now 193 world leaders have agreed to 17 Global Goals to end poverty, inequality and halt climate change. This means we can all work collectively and collaboratively towards the end of hunger.
We invite you, your business or your organisation to get involved with our work and join our global movement of people passionate about ending hunger. We believe that we each have a role to play in ending hunger – what’s yours?
Our Leadership Programs are designed to unearth leadership potential based on what we know best – shifting the mindset and creating visionary, committed and active leaders. Our work to shift the mindset from ‘I can’t, to ‘I can’, to ‘We can’ is creating change on a global level.
Now I’m back in school, I am studying hard so that I can get into a good college… I no longer have to worry about child marriage.

We’ve run 3 major campaigns and have been blown away by our customers’ response to the partnership. People want to help, people want to give back in a meaningful and targeted way. We have been able to make this a reality for our customers by partnering with THP.

THE ETHOS OF THE HUNGER PROJECT OF TRAINING THE LOCAL PEOPLE TO LIFT THEMSELVES FROM THEIR CURRENT SITUATION TO SEE THE POSSIBILITY OF RISING ABOVE “WHAT IS” TO A NEW LEVEL OF LIFE IS INSPIRATIONAL. IT’S NOT ABOUT GIVING MONEY; IT’S ABOUT GIVING SKILLS.
Ivan Halbert, long time investor at The Hunger Project
Individuals living in hunger and poverty are not ignorant and helpless. They are hard-working and creative human beings and are the world’s most valuable resource.
