The objective of HFW is to create a world free of hunger.Being able to access adequate food in order to sustain a healthy body and mind is the most fundamental human right. HFW aims to make this “Right to Food” a reality for all. Regardless of where we are born or live, each one of us belongs to a world where hunger is a problem which must be addressed. Under the banner of “Creating together, Working together,” HFW calls upon all people to take action towards ending hunger.
Out of its headquarters in Japan, it organizes field work in Bangladesh, Benin, Burkina Faso, and Uganda. It is an authorized NPO (nonprofit organization) that is independent of any ideology, religion, or political affiliation.
HFW’s activities are supported by membership fees, donations, and grants. Funds are used to support self-reliance of the people in developing countries who are suffering from hunger. The funds are also used for awareness raising activities to have people understand more on hunger and poverty situations and international cooperation as well as management costs.
