Our Impact

At a glance

The Hunger Project has a global reach of more than 16.1 million people living in rural villages in Africa, India, Bangladesh and Latin America who we empower to end their own hunger.

Amplifier effect of your investment

When your investment enables The Hunger Project to train one person, the ripple effect it catalyses is far-reaching: to their children and spouses, to their neighbours and to the wider community. This is the power of The Hunger Project’s approach thanks to your investment.

Impact of your investment over time

The Hunger Project tracks our work over years so we can see the transformation in behaviour and attitudes caused by our activities, and can shape and adapt our programmes. We train our village partners to collect, collate and analyse their own data, so that they can take control of their own development and progress.

The results shown here have been achieved over a 3-5 year period in 8 high-performing Epicentre communities (taken as an average).

Progress is made when we all work together

It will take more than The Hunger Project working alone to achieve the end of hunger. That’s why we were thrilled when the UN announced the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. You can see a snapshop of the breadth of The Hunger Project’s work, and how what we do addresses all 17 of the Global Goals. When The Hunger Project and others strategically work together within the framework of the 17 Global Goals, we can achieve the end of hunger in a sustainable way.

The global consulting firm McKinsey & Co reviewed The Hunger Project’s work in Uganda and found that our organisation is efficient and effective; that our distinctive approach delivers uniquely efficient, sustainable impact; and that we address attitudes first, and then, only after a mindset change, do we begin action through skill building and tangible projects. This creates ownership.

“The Hunger Project’s empowerment model is an exciting future-engine of truly sustainable development.” – McKinsey & Co review of The Hunger Project’s work in Uganda
