Mission

Enable the poor, especially women, to create a world without hunger and poverty. 

About

Freedom from Hunger is an independent affiliate of Grameen Foundation. When our two organizations joined forces in October 2016, core operating functions, programs and staff of Freedom from Hunger were integrated into Grameen Foundation. At the same time, Freedom from Hunger continues to operate as a charitable organization and independent affiliate of Grameen Foundation, guiding projects across the world to give women the tools they need to end poverty and hunger for themselves and their families.

Our approach combines the power of partnerships, digital technology, and self-help solutions.

To achieve lasting change, we collaborate with local partners: companies, non-governmental organizations, government agencies and others that share a common interest in developing, delivering and sustaining innovative solutions to poverty and hunger. 

Our solutions always promote self-help, and because children are most vulnerable to the ravages of poverty and malnutrition, we focus on women—their primary caretakers. We equip women to succeed at the very thing they are already determined to do—feed and educate their children, improve their family’s health, and create positive change in their communities.

Our programs strive to harness the unprecedented opportunities offered by technology, especially digital technology, to accelerate progress in the fight against poverty and hunger. 

Freedom from Hunger is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
