Who We Are

The Hunger Project reached 16 million people in 12 countries of South Asia, Africa and Latin America in 2018. 27 Epicenters (clusters of rural villages) have completed the final project phase and are now managed in self-reliance by 507 communities (470,209 inhabitants).

The Hunger Project is an international movement of people who actively strive for the goal to overcome chronic malnutrition worldwide.

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

"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."

Dr. iur. Daniel Heini, board member, has been supporting THP for more than 20 years
