Action Center to End World Hunger

Commitment by

Mercy Corps

In 2008, Mercy Corps committed to educating Americans, especially youth, about the root causes of global poverty and hunger through the launch of the interactive, museum-quality Action Center to End World Hunger located in Lower Manhattan. Visitors to the Action Center work to support school feeding programs, education for girls, campaigns to end world hunger, and micro-lending programs among hundreds of other opportunities for involvement. Young people who visit the Action Center can also join the Global Citizen Corps, a national network of youth who educate and mobilize their schools and communities to fight global poverty.
