The Hunger Project


 Support The Hunger Project



UnderTheDoormat is an entrepreneurial start-up helping people create local experiences through sharing their homes.  We believe in “Making the Impossible Possible” and supporting other entrepreneurs to build businesses around the world to help create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.

From its inception, UnderTheDoormat has been a corporate sponsor of The Hunger Project UK (THP) “Entrepreneurs supporting Entrepreneurs’ programme where a percentage of our profits go to supporting grassroots entrepreneurs.   Founded on closely aligned principles, and a commitment to global, sustainable results, the partnership allows both organisations to have a greater impact in the world, in a local way!  We hope to be the ‘Key to Your Local Story’ of success and life changing impact for entrepreneurs around the world.





Rethink World Hunger

In Africa, South Asia and Latin America, The Hunger Project works to end hunger and poverty by empowering millions of women and men to lead lives of self-reliance, meet their own basic needs and build better futures for their children.

The Hunger Project carries out its mission through three essential activities: mobilising village clusters at the grassroots level to build self-reliance, empowering women as key change agents, and forging effective partnerships with local government.  All THP’s programmes are run in country by local leaders and the goal is to ensure self-sustainability of all epicentres and microfinance programmes so that the impact over time continues to grow. 

Our commitment:  In addition to sharing a percentage of our profits with The Hunger Project, our commitment runs much deeper, including volunteering, taking part in challenges to support THP and our CEO, Merilee Karr is a Charity Trustee of The Hunger Project UK. 

Think world hunger is just a fact of life? Think again.
