The Hunger Project started in 1977 with a bold new vision: the end of hunger was achievable and could become our reality. At that time, 30,000 children were dying each day due to hunger. Now, that estimate has been reduced by more than 70%. That means that today — and each day — 21,000 fewer children are dying from hunger-related causes. It is time to rethink world hunger.
The end of world hunger is not only possible. It is now within reach.
The global community is joining together to eradicate hunger by the year 2030. And each of us has a pivotal role to play.
Over the last 25 years, The Hunger Project has pioneered strategies that work. We have discovered that communities can sustainably end their own hunger when they:
- Start with women
- Mobilize everyone
- Engage government
Created as a strategic organization, The Hunger Project challenges itself to remain on the cutting edge, reinventing ourselves time and again to take on each opportunity along the journey of ending hunger.
We cannot reach our goal with business as usual. It will take innovation, commitment and partnership. We must use the lessons we have learned to transform the way the world carries out its work to end hunger.
Your participation has never been more critical. We invite you to bring others into the movement at this exciting time so that, together, our human family can end hunger once and for all.
