The Hunger Project
An example of using our collective powers of mind is the Hunger Project, a strategic organization and global movement committed to the sustainable end of world hunger. Begun in the 1970s, the Hunger Project has transformed the way many people view hunger in the world today. Their website (www.thp.org) describes who they are and what they do.
In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, we empower local people to create lasting society-wide progress in health, education, nutrition, and family incomes. We apply a two-pronged strategy: mobilizing grassroots self-reliant action, and mobilizing local leadership to clear away obstacles to enable grassroots action to succeed.
Our highest priority is the empowerment of women. Women bear primary responsibility for family health, education, and nutrition - yet, by tradition, culture, and law they are denied the means, information, and freedom of action to fulfill their responsibility. The Hunger Project is committed to transforming this condition.
