Tim, Dionne and AsaWorld Hunger Day – Empowering People. Ending Hunger will take place on 9th January 2011, providing an annual focus of awareness and fundraising. It is also about celebrating the achievements of millions of people who are already ending their own hunger and meeting their basic needs. World Hunger Day seeks to inspire people in both the developed and developing worlds to show their solidarity and support to enable many more to end their own hunger and poverty and make the journey to self-reliance.

Additionally, we hope that World Hunger Day, will encourage even more organisations to work in partnership with each other and with the women, men and children in the developing world who seek to bring about a sustainable end to their own hunger and poverty.

The Hunger Project is delivering ground breaking results in full support of the Millennium Development Goals, mobilising rural communities at the grassroots level. Give Now
