An Unleashed 2019 Update

530 300 The Hunger Project Australia

We are already halfway through Unleashed 2019!

Currently, 820 million people live in hunger globally. Studies show that when women are empowered and earn an income, they spend a significant portion of it on their families. This may be on things like education, health and food.

We started Unleashed as a powerful, global movement to empower these women to end hunger for themselves, their families and their communities.

Some amazing initiatives kicked off Unleashed and there are many more fundraisers in the calendar. Our incredible partners have helped make a huge impact in empowering the women we work with in villages in India, Africa and Bangladesh.

Every $1000 raised could could fund Adult Literacy training for 25 women, like Louise, in Africa, so that they can learn how to read and write.

Together, we can empower women to end their own hunger.

The Highlights So Far

Voices Unleashed

For a unique night of entertainment, Sydney’s two top acapella choirs, Cafe of the Gate of Salvation and Honeybees Choir, hosted an amazing performance. Their gospel singing perfectly captured the theme of ‘Unleashed’ – empowering, positive and fun!

NOVA Toastie Truck

NOVA Entertainment met us at the finish line of the City2Surf in Sydney. They served up delicious toasties for a post-run feed.

Office Pop-Up

We’ve also seen some clever workplace fundraising, including this mini office pop-up selling freshly grown fruit and herbs. Who doesn’t love fresh and locally grown produce?

Speed Dating for Hunger

Over 300 Sydneysiders searched for love at CitySwoon’s Speed Dating for Hunger event in Sydney. The night was a whole lot of fun raising funds for Unleashed (still being tallied)! A huge thank you to the CitySwoon team — Chris, Brett and Louise.

Elle Macpherson on the Business Chicks Stage

Successful model and businesswoman Elle Macpherson has been travelling around Australia with the awesome ladies at Business Chicks, and they have been doing a raffle at each event to raise funds for Unleashed!
