They seek to help end world hunger and poverty, especially in rural villages throughout Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. Their three elements are (1) empowering women as key change agents; (2) mobilizing communities for self-reliant action; and (3) fostering effective partnerships with local governments. THP began in 1999 and is currently involved in 22 countries, 17,000 communities, and 2,900 projects with 85 organizations. Much of their emphasis is on leadership training, health and nutrition, water and sanitation, and more effective use of available resources. Along with their headquarters in New York City, they have offices in Washington, DC and in 12 other countries. Their website has many stories and more details.
