The Hunger Project (THP) has the tagline: Effective Action to End World Hunger.
The Hunger Project uses low-cost, people-centered strategies for the sustainable end of hunger. I recently was at meetings were two persons from Bangladesh talked about how The Hunger Project works there. The country manager, professor Badiul Alam Majumdar, gave a more theoretical talk about why charity does not work. But the great part was a woman named Chandrika Banerjee who talked about how her life has changed radically for the better. It was impressive, touching and heartwarming.
