A hunger-free world is possible! Stop Hunger is a global non-profit network that has been working locally for those most in need to permanently escape hunger.
- Stop feeding the world to sustainably stop hunger, because food aid is not a long-term solution,
- Go beyond food aid, by developing food self-sufficiency and facilitating access to training, education and employment,
- Empower women who represent the most effective solution to hunger within their communities.
Hunger is not inevitable but is rather the result of political, economic and climatic obstacles.
Today, around 1 in 9 people still suffer from hunger, or 821 million human beings.
Hunger is not inevitable but is rather the result of internal conflicts, natural or human-caused catastrophes, speculation on agricultural goods, absence and/or lack of water and waste.
To enduringly end hunger in the world, the women empowerment is essential. If they had access to the same resources as men - education, training, financing, farmland, markets... - up to 150 million additional people could be fed.
