About us

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-centred 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 16 million people who are transforming themselves, their families and their communities, and are bringing about the end of hunger.

Our work in the UK

For us in the United Kingdom, we think there is more to life than just consuming. We are all connected, and honouring that connection through partnership makes life richer.

We all have a part to play in the end of hunger. Find yours by joining the movement of people rising up to end hunger by 2030.

Help us mobilise indigenous women in Mexico

Mexico is a powerful emerging economy with an abundance of resources and established macroeconomic institutions. The country has made considerable progress in the last decade. Unemployment rates have steadily decreased as more Mexicans participate in the labor force. Women are playing a larger role in government.

While progress has been made, there is still work to be done. Despite generous social welfare programs, including the National Crusade Against Hunger, poverty continues to persist. Within the highly patriarchal social structure of indigenous communities, women have the least power and least access to productive resources. These structural causes of poverty are a challenge to overcome, but are not insurmountable.

At The Hunger Project, we support community-led initiatives that break the mindset of dependence. This includes using bottom-up strategies for improving nutrition and food availability, expanding access to health services and education, and catalysing relationships with local governments. In Mexico, we focus our efforts on mobilising the most marginalised populations in rural, indigenous communities.

The Cooperativa Jpas Joloviletik has worked with The Hunger Project-Mexico since 2008 to mobilise women for economic empowerment. The Cooperativa helps women realise that they have a voice and shows them how to assert it through leadership opportunities. Through The Cooperativa, women produce and sell handmade textiles at a fair price. These artisans started a thread shop so they could shop locally for supplies, leading the entire process from registering the shop legally to constructing the physical building. Their leadership and activism extends beyond their livelihood. Women active with the cooperative are using their organising skills to lead the creation of family gardens using organic compost and conducting seed exchanges with neighbouring communities. This action supports the nutrition and food security of their families.
