Our Model To Achieve a Hunger Free World

Provide For Today & Build for Tomorrow

We target remote, last-mile communities within hunger pockets designated “serious” or higher on the Global Hunger Index, which are the hardest places to reach and are often difficult to access, lack communication and have poor infrastructure. With the support of our global impact partners, we practice locally-led development by providing expertise vital to empower local communities and providing meals through local schools to incentive attendance and enable kids to obtain an education. Our work starts with a meal.

While providing meals to meet the immediate needs, we organize community members and build their capabilities with resources and opportunities for livelihood and income generation.  Through education, counseling and field level coordination with the local service providers, we enable the community’s access to healthcare facilities and other government support.  Wherever feasible, we step in to bridge the gap for the communities to have access to water, sanitation, roads etc.

Pathways to End Hunger

Nourishing Lives

While long-term food security projects take root, communities facing hunger still need to meet their basic needs today. We provide nutritional support through our prepackaged meals, which contain 20 vitamins and minerals to meet community needs. These safety net and nutrition supplement programs provide nourishment to pregnant and lactating mothers, to young children – both groups who need good nutrition during these critical periods.  The safety net programs are also complemented with health services, safe drinking water and other household hygiene related support.

Empowering Communities

Through locally led agriculture and income-generating programs, we bolster crop production and incomes by promoting improved agricultural methods, business skills and market access. With training and access to quality seeds and fertilizers, farmers can increase production and harvest a variety of nutrition-sensitive crops. By supporting backyard poultry, nutrition gardens, livestock rearing, we provide pathways to diversifying diets and improving nutritional outcomes. Through income-generating activities, we help individuals increase their earning potential and consistent access to food. With these efforts we are aiming for thousands of households affected by food insecurity to have the knowledge, skills, and assets necessary to ensure their food and nutrition security.

Responding to Emergencies

From droughts to floods, in conflict zones and transitioning political situations, food is often the most immediate need. When everyday access to food, wages and market systems are destroyed in the wake of emergencies, Rise Against Hunger India works directly in the field as well as through a network of local partners to address these needs. We strive to ensure food and other assistance is efficiently and effectively deployed to and received by communities when it is needed most. it is a fact that climate hazards and disasters affect those at the bottom level of the income threshold, so we are integrating resilience, climate adaptation and coping mechanism as part of our emergency preparedness strategy.

Growing the Movement

Rise Against Hunger India recognizes that hunger will not end without creating a global movement.  A hunger free world is possible when everyone takes steps to do something about it.  We engage thousands of volunteers and hunger champions each year to build awareness and activation. We have worked with over 65,000 such champions, donors, fans and influencers to make a difference through our various opportunities, including meal packaging, virtual experiences, digital and social engagement, and more.
