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.
