NGO The Hunger Project launches education campaign to end world hunger

The Australian branch of global NGO The Hunger Project has launched a new movement mobilising Australian women to empower women globally to end their own hunger by 2030.

The campaign, Unleashed Women, asks Australian women to raise funds which will be directed into community initiatives in rural Africa, India, Latin America and Bangladesh.

The initiatives aim to make these communities self-reliant and hunger-free by educating women about nutrition, providing capital for small business loans, and training volunteers to lead their communities in education, stopping child marriage and sanitation.

The Hunger Project aims to raise $250,000 act in its first year by asking women to commit to raising $1000 by December 31 and to recruit five others to the movement. Participants who reach this target will be invited to a series of national events held during the week of International Women’s Day in March 2017.

The project’s ambassadors include: Decjuba and Cotton On Group founder Tania Austin; Business Chicks CEO Olivia Ruello: Victoria Black (publisher and editor in chief, Wildfire Publishing) and Genevieve Davidson (founder and owner of Fitbodz fitness centre).

The campaign has rolled out across digital platforms and includes promotional videos, posters and a Spotify playlist.
