820 million people live in hunger globally. Studies show that when women are empowered and earn an income, they spend a significant portion of it on their families on things like education, health and food.
By educating, training and empowering one woman, she can lift herself, her family and her community out of hunger and poverty.
If she can read, we can flourish; if she can eat well, we can be nourished; if she can give safe birth, we can grow up strong.
If she can, we can.
Unleashed is a powerful global movement to educate, train and empower women so they can end hunger and poverty for everyone, and enable their families and communities to flourish. If she can, we can.
To date, we’ve raised $278,000 through Unleashed, and in our fourth year of the campaign, we are partnering with like-minded businesses.
This is your opportunity to take a stand for women's empowerment alongside other leading Australian businesses throughout August and September.
All the funds raised through Unleashed go towards The Hunger Project’s work ending hunger in Africa, India and Bangladesh.
This is your opportunity to engage your staff, customers and/or clients to empower women globally by raising funds for Unleashed, and to take a stand alongside other leading Australian businesses for women’s empowerment and the end of hunger.
We are available to brainstorm the best ways to get involved that make sense to your business e.g. creating a limited-edition Unleashed product, turning staff events into Unleashed fundraisers, or engaging your clients to make a global impact.
