Africa has the highest rates of hunger worldwide.* These rates are increasing due to conflict and climate change. If we don't address this soon, millions of lives will be at risk. And we need more than crisis intervention and emergency aid — we need long-term solutions to empower people.
The Hunger Project addresses the root causes of hunger and poverty using an affordable, replicable and sustainable methodology. We invest in and enable people to become resilient, so they can better cope with food security challenges.
Shehubo Dedgeba's village in Ethiopia has experienced flooding in recent years. Many families have lost their homes. Fortunately, Shehubo is among the people who have survived and rebounded from the damage.
Shehubo participates in The Hunger Project's Moringa Campaign, Mesqan Epicenter Ethiopia — a community-led partnership that empowers villages to define their own path to sustainable self-reliance. She was able to build a more durable home for her family through the credit and savings program. Today, she manages programs that address food security, nutrition, and other issues. Her success is an inspiration to her community.
People like Shehubo need our support. Join our campaign to end world hunger by 2030. By signing this pledge, you will send a clear message to governments that the international community supports people in the developing world end their own hunger.
