Gender-focused Community-led Development for All!

The Hunger Project has a two-pronged mission: to end hunger and poverty by pioneering women-centered, bottom-up strategies (what we would now call “gender-focused, community-led development) and to advocate for their widespread adoption.

This site is dedicated to the second prong of our mission. We do this in three key ways:

 

Building the Movement for Community-led Development.

Leadership and solidarity in civil society.

Sharing our methodology for its wide-spread adoption.
