THIS WORLD HUNGER DAY, WE RECOGNIZE THAT EMPOWERED PEOPLE ARE THE ANSWER.
World Hunger Day is an initiative by The Hunger Project. Started in 2011, it aims to celebrate sustainable solutions to hunger and poverty.
This year, the day will highlight the importance of fostering self-reliance, upholding principles of human dignity and recognizing that every human is inherently creative, resourceful, responsible and productive. Decades of systematic marginalization have kept people from making lasting changes in their communities. A holistic development approach — one that includes peacebuilding, social harmony, human rights and good governance — is essential to ensuring the empowerment of people living in hunger and poverty.
More than 815 million people in the world do not have enough food.
Join us on World Hunger Day to make a difference in the poorest communities.
