• Empowering women as key change agents THP knows that when we empower women, families are healthier, more children go to school, agricultural productivity improves, and incomes increase.

  • Mobilizing communities for change THP trains women and men, equipping them with the skills, methods and knowledge to take self-reliant actions to improve their lives and conditions in their communities.

  • Partnering with local government THP partners with local government bodies to ensure they are effective, include women, are accountable to local people, and provide access to resources and information.

"For me, the Hunger Project means a continuous opportunity to feel and express the solidarity and partnership with the people who live in extreme poverty in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Over the years, huge potential has been released in me and my partners in the affected countries – resulting in sustainable improvements in the quality of life for all."
