The Hunger Project UK

The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organisation committed to the sustainable end of world hunger. The organisation works in 24,000 communities, reaching 19 million people in Africa, South Asia and Latin America.

One of the The Hunger Project's primary focuses is developing women’s leadership to end hunger and poverty, with strategies including empowering women in local democracy in India, building a movement of women leaders in Bangladesh, strengthening the capacity of indigenous leaders in Latin America, and creating and establishing women-owned and women-run rural banks in Africa. 

We know that women are pivotal to the sustainable end of hunger. Communities become more resilient, families are healthier, more children go to school, incomes increase, and agricultural productivity improves. 

When women are empowered and supported, everyone rises.
