The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organization committed to the sustainable end of world hunger.
In Africa, Asia and Latin America, The Hunger Project seeks to end hunger and poverty by empowering people to lead lives of self-reliance, meet their own basic needs and build better futures for their children. The Hunger Project carries out its mission through three essential activities: mobilizing village clusters at the grassroots level to build self-reliance, empowering women as key change agents, and forging effective partnerships with local government. We have discovered three critical elements that, when combined, empower people to make rapid progress in overcoming hunger and poverty: * Mobilizing people at the grassroots level to build self-reliance * Empowering women as key change agents; and * Forging partnerships with local government. We have developed several key initiatives within our country programs that address our three pillars: * Community Centers for Meeting Basic Needs * Honoring Africa's Leadership * Microfinance Program in Africa to Build the Capacity of Small Farmers * HIV/AIDS and Gender * Celebrating Girl Children in Bangladesh * Fostering Government Accountability in Bangladesh * Strengthening Elected Women Leaders in India * Partnering with Media to Enhance Women's Leadership Source: www.thp.org
