Fi Global and The Hunger Project

The Hunger Project is an international, non-profit organization committed to a sustainable end to chronic hunger worldwide. Up to 811 million people worldwide live in hunger, according to the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World Report. Hunger and poverty are complex issues. Sustainable change requires a holistic solution. The Hunger Project’s programs are women-centered, community-led responses that address the root causes of hunger and poverty.
Their programs reach nearly 16 million people in nearly 15,000 communities worldwide. The Hunger Project has more than two decades’ worth of data to support their commitment that community-led development makes deep and sustainable change.

But The Hunger Project can’t change the world alone. The end of hunger and poverty everywhere will require efforts from every corner of the earth. That’s why Fi Global, represented by Group Brand Director Natasha Berrow, is a member of The Hunger Project Netherlands’ network Odisha’s 100, in which driven women and men support The Hunger Project’s work in India to empower female leaders.

The Hunger Project believes people living in hunger and poverty are the principal leaders of their own change, they are the solution, not the problem. The Hunger Project works to shift the mindsets of women and men so they transform into leaders for the sustainable end of hunger. Then, through various programs such as education, microfinance, agriculture and health, THP empowers people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to break the poverty cycle themselves.

Together with Fi Global, The Hunger Project invites you to come together as part of our global movement and invest in the end of hunger.

Portrait Story

Meet the change-maker: Immaculate

Breaking the Cycle of Malnutrition for Girls

Immaculate Bukomeko knows that when girls delay marriage, a new world opens up for them. As an animator, a local leader trained by The Hunger Project, Immaculate offers health services, advice, and conversations with parents  — all instrumental in combating child marriages.  

At 53, this experienced nurse is a vibrant member of her community in Uganda. Working as a government health worker isn’t just a job... She’s securing a healthy, hunger-free future for every young girl in her community. She knows that delaying marriage leads to education. And educated girls don’t just take an active role in ensuring the rights of other women are upheld… They also have healthier children, effectively breaking the cycle of poverty and malnutrition.
