Our projects

BGR projects are designed to provide direct food aid to people afflicted by hunger and malnutrition, to promote ecologically sustainable agriculture, to support the education of girls and women, and to give women an opportunity to start right livelihood projects to support their families. >

2016 Walk to Feed the Hungry

Some 800 million people around the world suffer from chronic hunger and malnutrition. BGR’s walks aim to raise funds to sponsor long-term, sustainable projects that enable poor communities to escape the scourge of hunger and poverty. This year walks are being held in ten locations around the US, from coast to coast. For a letter on the meaning of the walk by Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, click here.

We invite you to join us in putting compassion into action by joining a walk, donating to support walkers, or raising funds to support your own walk.
