The Hunger Project
The Hunger Project Story:
Louise Finds Her Voice Louise Lagni is 42 years old and lives in the village of Dotan in Benin. Her husband farms their small plot of land and grows, among other things, corn. Louise herself trades fruit, corn and peanuts at local markets. Louise is a strong and proud woman – characteristics she demonstrates regularly when the women of her region come together for meetings in Zakpota Epicenter. These days, she voices her opinion clearly and without hesitation at these meetings, but this wasn’t always...
To end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world.
How We Accomplish Our Mission
The Hunger Project works in partnership with grassroots people in Africa, Asia and Latin America to develop effective bottom-up strategies.
We have discovered three critical elements that, when combined, empower people to make rapid progress in overcoming hunger and poverty:
- Mobilizing people at the grassroots level to build self-reliance
- Empowering women as key change agents; and
- Forging partnerships with local government.
