Freedom from Hunger

Freedom from Hunger is an international NGO (non-governmental organization) based in Davis, California, with a 60+ year history of developing, testing and distributing to scale self-help innovations that address the root causes of chronic hunger. Since the late 1980’s, Freedom from Hunger has pioneered and refined its distinguishing contribution to international development, methodology that integrates microfinance activities with other high-impact services such as education (in the areas of health and nutrition, household finances and business management) and health protection. Freedom from Hunger is distinguished in its field by its focus on self-help solutions for rural, poor populations, by its commitment to rigorous testing and evaluation of its approaches, and by leveraging its resources through collaboration and partnership.
