The Challenge

The Hunger Project works to create and enable COVID resilient communities, build peace, trust and cohesion - starting with women in the state of Rajasthan, who are faced with regular threats to their safety.

The Hunger Project works with women elected to their local councils (panchayats). Often from low socio-economic backgrounds, illiterate and uneducated, they are thrust into positions of power for the first time.

Through The Hunger Project's 5-year training program, these women leverage their new power and influence to question and defy entrenched social norms; transform gender relations, role model leadership for adolescent girls, promote girls’ education, prevent child marriage, and advocate for transformative change in their communities.
