Action Against Hunger

Action Against Hunger | ACF International, a global humanitarian organization committed to ending world hunger, works to save the lives of malnourished children while providing communities with access to safe water and sustainable solutions to hunger.

What Makes Us Unique

Action Against Hunger saves lives while building long-term strategies for self-sufficiency:

  • Lifesaving impact in 40+ countries
  • 5,000+ field staff assisting more than seven million people each year
  • 30+ years of expertise in contexts of conflict, disasters and food crises

Our global efforts save hundreds of thousands of lives each year, but millions of malnourished children remain in need of lifesaving treatment. Join us today and help save a life.

Why Our Work Matters

Deadly malnutrition claims the lives of 1 million children each year, even though it’s:

  1. PREDICTABLE: We know where and when to expect acute malnutrition
  2. PREVENTABLE: We know how to help children stay healthy
  3. TREATABLE: Therapeutic ready-to-use foods can help save millions
  4. AFFORDABLE: Just $45 can provide a child with lifesaving treatment

We know how to save starving children if we can reach them. Help extend our reach.

Where Your Money Goes

We dedicate as much of our funding as possible to our lifesaving humanitarian programs. 
In 2013, we spent $0.91 of every donated dollar on program activities (learn more).

International Princess Project

The bottom line? Slavery still exists and we refuse to do nothing about it. In India, the average age of a girl entering the sex trade is eleven. Many who enter are trafficked… in other words kidnapped, lured with promises of jobs in the city or sold by their own friends or family into sexual slavery. It is estimated that there are more than 3 million women and girls enslaved in India’s sex trade.

CREATING PATHWAYS TO FREEDOM FOR WOMEN ESCAPING SEX SLAVERY

International Princess™ Project’s mission is to create pathways to freedom for women escaping the ravages of sex slavery to achieve lives of hope and dignity.

We do this by partnering with indigenous organizations to establish micro-enterprise sewing centers that offer these women and girls a fresh start and place to heal. When a woman becomes part of an IPP sewing center, she learns a new trade [sewing] and practices refining her craftsmanship by producing quality sleep & loungewear called PUNJAMMIES™. The finished product is then exported to the US and sold online to countries all over the world with proceeds coming back to benefit each of the sewing centers. Each pair of PUNJAMMIES™ is named after a woman in one of our sewing centers so when you wear PUNJAMMIES™, you are wearing a message of HOPE for others like the women who lovingly stitched your loungewear.

But it doesn’t stop there.

Finding freedom from the red light districts and brothels is just the first step of restoration. Each woman not only receives a wage higher than fair trade along with housing options, medical care and, where applicable, education for her children.

They are also part of a loving, restorative community of other women who were formerly trafficked.

TO ACHIEVE LIVES OF HOPE AND DIGNITY.

100% of the proceeds are re-invested back into the company to help it grow. And that kind of growth doesn’t mean bigger profit margins, butMORE WOMEN AND GIRLS who get a chance at a new life.

So again, back to the bottom line: We believe ending human trafficking IS possible and will work as hard as we can to do our part. If you’re reading this, it means you probably care about the injustice of sex slavery too, so shop for freedom, by purchasingPUNJAMMIES™ or donate your finances and/or talents to join the many people taking a stand against modern-day slavery.
