The Challenge

In some areas of Bangladesh, up to 62% of girls are married before turning 18. These girls are not only denied their childhood, they can suffer from developmental issues due to early pregnancy. They're vulnerable to STD's including HIV, increased risk of domestic violence and have limited opportunities for education and employment.

We know women are the key to creating change for girls within their communities. Empowered women can achieve extraordinary impact, catalysing new and brighter futures for girls and their families.

The Hunger Project trains women to unleash their leadership and capacity to take action in their homes, villages and communities, to stop child marriage, violence against women and girls, discrimination against girl children - and shift hearts and minds on the importance of gender equality.

Our Impact

$5 =

enables 50 women to participate in a meeting hosted by trained women leaders, held in safe spaces at the homes of village women, to discuss and learn about critical issues affecting them and their communities, like ending child marriage.
