The Hunger Project is a global movement of individuals and organizations in 23 countries worldwide working in authentic partnership for the sustainable end of hunger.

The Hunger Project was founded in 1977, in the wake of the rising debate on world hunger triggered by the first Rome World Food Conference.

The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organization committed to the sustainable end of world hunger with a mission is to end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world.

Mindset shift is at the heart of The Hunger Project’s programs. The Hunger Project and EthicalCoach believe that leadership coaching is a key component for building leadership capacity. We’re on a mission to put data behind that belief.

Thirteen members of The Hunger Project have been selected for six months of pro-bono leadership coaching around their most pressing organizational, team and professional challenges.

They have been matched with coaches drawn from EthicalCoach’s international network and both leaders and coaches who will participate in action research in parallel to the coaching.

Coaching Team

Drawn from nine different countries, coaches provide 1:1 executive leadership coaching to the selected leaders.
