Our Mission

The Hunger Project's Vision

A world where every woman, man and child leads a healthy, fulfilling life of self-reliance and dignity.

The Hunger Project’s Mission

To end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world.

What We Believe

We know it’s possible for hunger to end, and that our generation has the power to end it once and for all. In our experience, people who live in hunger are not the problem – they are the solution. We don’t see a billion mouths to feed, we see a billion human beings who are enterprising and resilient. The work, therefore, is to unlock their capacity, creativity and leadership so they can end their own hunger. That’s what we do.

The Hunger Project empowers women and men living in rural villages in Africa, India, Bangladesh and Latin America to end their own hunger. We reach more than 16.1 million people who are transforming themselves, their families and their communities, and are bringing about the end of hunger.

Ending hunger

We’ve always believed the end of hunger is possible, and as of September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to the UN’s 17 Global Goals to end poverty, inequality and halt the climate crisis. The UN’s Global Goals set out a vision for the world from 2015 to 2030 so that we all work collectively and collaboratively towards the end of hunger. We always knew that it would take much more than ‘business as usual’ to end hunger, so this alignment of governments and international organisations to this deadline is a crucial tipping point for the end of hunger. This is a big shift globally in how we think about hunger. This is a really exciting time for us and our village partners. We’re thrilled you’re part of it too.
