In Africa, South Asia and Latin America, The Hunger Project empowers people to lead lives of self- reliance, meet their own basic needs and build better futures for their children. We believe people who currently live in poverty 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. We call upon their creativity and encourage courageous leadership.
Through training and education, the organisation empowers local villagers to take effective and sustainable action in the areas of health, education, adult literacy, nutrition, improved farming and food security, microfinance, water and sanitation and HIV/AIDS prevention.
