International Women’s Day 2019 – Better the balance, better the world!

530 300 The Hunger Project Australia

On 8 March The Hunger Project will be celebrating International Women’s Day and the theme of ‘Balance is Better’. It is a day on which we stop and reflect on the milestones made to date for women, and also look to the next actions required for achieving gender equality.  

We are working to creating a future free from hunger and in doing so we believe in building a gender-balanced world.
