ENDING HUNGER

At Maisha Project, we believe ending hunger is possible when we empower people to become agents of change, lifting themselves and their communities out of hunger and poverty for the long term. 

The solution to hunger is not about hand-outs and a top-down approach, but a bottom-up approach that starts with men and women, works with local government and mobilizes communities to take self-reliant actions.

WHAT IS HUNGER?

According to the UN Hunger Report, hunger is the term used to define periods when populations are experiencing severe food insecurity—meaning that they go for entire days without eating due to lack of money, lack of access to food, or other resources.

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF HUNGER?

Here are some widely accepted definitions of key terms:

  • Hunger is the distress associated with lack of food. The threshold for food deprivation, or undernourishment, is fewer than 1,800 calories per day.
  • Undernutrition goes beyond calories to signify deficiencies in energy, protein, and/or essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Malnutrition refers more broadly to both undernutrition and overnutrition (problems with unbalanced diets). 
  • Food security relates to food availability, access, and utilization. When a person always has adequate availability and access to enough safe and nutritious food to maintain an active and healthy life, they are considered food secure.
