In 2021, to bring its partners together and mobilize its donors, STOP HUNGER is reinventing itself thanks to a new approach: an amazing 100% virtual event, with on-set debates and exclusive stories shot in Madagascar, Jordan, Haiti and Bolivia to meet inspiring women, committed to their communities.
This program, entitled ‘United for a Hunger Free World’, is part of a larger picture. The challenge: Empower women to unleash their full potential through education and work to get out of extreme poverty and end global hunger.
By honouring Stop Hunger, its commitments, its people and its partners such as the World Food Programme (Nobel Peace Prize 2020), Sodexo, Les Restos du Coeur or the association Toutes à l’école, we open a debate of public interest to raise awareness and awaken consciences.
United, we have the power to build a Hunger Free World. The operation is supported by the TF1 Group through its iconic media Aufeminin, Marmiton, Fresh and Just Better.
