The Hunger Project-Sweden has offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo. Its objectives are: (1) raising funds for the global programs of The Hunger Project and (2) raising awareness of The Hunger Project's global aim to end hunger and poverty. In addition to the Country Director, Sara Wettergren, there are five additional staff members: Magdalena Jennstål, Ylva Munkhammar, Ellen Hoas Ströman, Lina Areblad and Niklas Hallhagen.
Each year, The Hunger Project joins billions of people around the world in celebrating International Women's Day (IWD) to honor and raise a voice for women around the world. Particularly relevant given recent violent acts against women, this year's IWD theme was “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women.” On March 8, 2013, thousands of women and men partnered with The Hunger Project around the world to advocate for equality, prosperity and empowerment for all women – see how.
