OUR MISSION To end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world. OUR VISION - A World without Hunger A world where every woman, man and child leads a healthy, fulfilling life of self-reliance and dignity. " THE HUNGER PROJECT IS NOT ABOUT HELPING OR SAVING PEOPLE. IT´S ABOUT UNLEASHING THE POWER OF PEOPLE TO TAKE CHARGE OF THEIR OWN FUTURE - AND WALKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THEM AS THEY UNDERTAKE THIS JOURNEY FOR THEMSELVES." Mary Ellen McNish, President and CEO, The Hunger Project The Hunger Project works in partnership with grassroots people in Africa, Asia and Latin America to develop effective bottom-up strategies. 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.
