Who We Work With

We empower women, men and children to end hunger for themselves and their communities for good.

We believe hungry people themselves are the key to ending hunger.

Once empowered, there is no one more determined, more willing and more capable to end their own hunger. We work to unleash their vision, commitment and leadership so they can lift themselves and their families above the poverty line.
