Together we can end hunger
by 2030

The Hunger Project works to
break the cycle of poverty.

We believe hungry people themselves are the key to ending hunger. In partnership, we unleash their vision, commitment and leadership so they can feed themselves and their families, and end hunger for good in their communities.

Women are often

most affected.

FACT #1:

Women make up almost half of the world’s farmers.


Yet, 60% of the world’s hungry are women.

Fact #3

If women farmers had access to the same resources as men, there could be 150 million less hungry people in the world.

Ending hunger starts when you
empower people.

821 million people do not have enough to eat.
Through a women-centred and community-led approach, The Hunger Project works to end extreme hunger and poverty by 2030, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.
