About the Book
The Hunger Project is a global, strategic organization committed to the sustainable end of world hunger.
In Africa, Asia and Latin America, The Hunger Project empowers millions of women and men to end their own hunger. The Hunger Project has pioneered low-cost, bottom-up, gender-focused strategies in each region where hunger persists. These strategies mobilize clusters of rural villages to create and run their own programs that achieve lasting progress in health, education, nutrition and family income.
In all our work, the highest priority is the empowerment of women. Women traditionally bear primary responsibility for family health, education, nutrition and - increasingly - family income. Yet women have been systematically denied information, resources and voice in decisions that affect their lives
In November 2006 a delegation of investors from around the world visited Rajasthan to get a first hand understanding of the strategy so that they can spread the word back home. This is a record of our trip.
