Who We Are

The Hunger Project Switzerland, based in Geneva, was founded in 1983. The association is non-denominational, politically neutral and, in light of its public welfare purpose, exempt from taxation. In November 2009, the Hunger Project Switzerland became ZEWO-certified and must therefore meet the ZEWO Foundation’s stringent requirements regarding the handling of donations. The association uses its receipts to fund the programs of The Hunger Project worldwide, which are aimed at overcoming hunger and poverty in Africa, Latin America and South Asia.

The Hunger Project carries out its mission with strategies that are affordable, effective, replicable and sustainable, based on three fundamental pillars:

  • Mobilizing people at the grassroots level to build self-reliance

  • Empowering women as key change agents

  • Forging effective partnerships with local government

"During the last 20 years, I have met many employees and volunteers of The Hunger Project around the world. Their determination and 100% commitment is unique and has inspired me very much. It is an honor for me to be their partner for a hunger-free world. I could't invest my money any better."
