Hunger & Starvation Myth #3: 

The world community does not possess the financial & technical resources necessary to end hunger.


The world community possesses the financial and technical resources necessary to end hunger.

Today, ending hunger is not primarily a technical or a production issue, it is a human issue. Hunger persists because we, as human beings, have failed to organize our societies in ways that assure every person the chance to live a healthy and productive life.

The Hunger Project is committed to the end of hunger. This means that we are committed to empowering people to create permanent, society-wide solutions to the problem, and not content ourselves with charitable actions that only benefit a few. We are committed to identifying and utilizing an accurate framework of thinking, and pioneering strategies and actions that will enable humanity to create a new future - a future free from hunger.

The Need for a New Set of Principles

The Hunger Project believes that the strategies and actions required to end hunger must emanate from a new set of principles. These principles are derived from an authentic confrontation with the commitment to ending hunger, and from a deeper examination of what it means to be human.

The principles of The Hunger Project are not created in a philosophical vacuum and then applied. They evolve and are refined in the action itself. The formulation of our principles changes as our experience grows. In this way, there is no room for arrogance. On the contrary, the work of ending hunger is a rigorous teacher of a complex subject, constantly requiring a spirit of humility and openness to discovery.
