The Challenge

The Hunger Project works to end hunger and poverty in Rajasthan, India by empowering women to become leaders in their communities. Studies show that when women are supported and empowered, all of society benefits. Their families are healthier, more children go to school, agricultural productivity improves, and incomes increase.

In India, one third of all seats in village councils are reserved for women. However, women in rural villages are often not equipped with the skills, knowledge, or tools they need to advocate for effective change. This is because they often come from low socio-economic backgrounds, are illiterate or uneducated.

The Hunger Project works with elected women over a 5-year training program where they learn how to become effective leaders for change. The 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.
