We are committed to creating positive social change around the world. We want to help end world hunger by supporting The Hunger Project (www.thehungerproject.co.uk) to create a more sustainable environment for all to share. We want to help people get active, so they can have healthier, happier and more successful lives.
Did you know that:
- Over 795 million people – or one in nine people in the world – do not have enough to eat?
- 60 percent of the world’s hungry are women?
- 50 percent of pregnant women in developing countries lack proper maternal care, resulting in 240,000 maternal deaths annually from childbirth?
- Approximately 896 million people in developing countries live on $1.90 a day or less?
Run Against Hunger - 5k run, is a charity event to raise money in support of The Hunger Project. We want to invite you to “rethink world hunger” and join us in helping to end extreme poverty. Because we strongly believe that passionate people can change the world for the better. Next Event: TBC
By donating to, or participating in, this event, you will be able to be part of our effort to change the world. Contribute what you can as a global citizen. In September of 2015, the United Nations, as one of the Sustainable Development Goals, set Zero Hunger by 2030, as Goal No 2. The end of world hunger is not only possible. It is now within reach. As we said, we’d like to invite you to “RETHINK WORLD HUNGER!”
Message from VENUS ARMY founder:
“I believe sports nutrition companies like us can do more than just selling products or services. Not only change the entire fitness industry, but we have the power to change the world, end hunger and give more to the society”. – Daminda Henaka-Ralalage (2014)
About The Hunger Project
The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organisation committed to the sustainable end of world hunger. The Hunger Project works at the heart of the problem, rather than making small contributions at the periphery. The Hunger Project works on building self-reliance, empowering women and men to achieve permanent solutions around the world to end their own hunger.
How it works:
The programmes throughout Africa, South Asia and Latin America are based on an innovative, holistic approach, which empowers people living in rural villages to become the agents of their own development and make sustainable progress in overcoming hunger and poverty.
While this approach is adapted locally to meet challenges and opportunities wherever The Hunger Project works, all the programs have at their foundation three essential pillars:
- Start by empowering women as key change agents
- Mobilising entire communities into self-reliant action
- Fostering effective partnerships to engage local government
