The Hunger Project is a global movement of individuals and organizations in 23 countries worldwide working in authentic partnership for the sustainable end of hunger.

The Hunger Project was founded in 1977, in the wake of the rising debate on world hunger triggered by the first Rome World Food Conference.

The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organization committed to the sustainable end of world hunger with a mission is to end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world.

Mindset shift is at the heart of The Hunger Project’s programs. The Hunger Project and EthicalCoach believe that leadership coaching is a key component for building leadership capacity. We’re on a mission to put data behind that belief.

Thirteen members of The Hunger Project have been selected for six months of pro-bono leadership coaching around their most pressing organizational, team and professional challenges.

They have been matched with coaches drawn from EthicalCoach’s international network and both leaders and coaches who will participate in action research in parallel to the coaching.

Coaching Team

Drawn from nine different countries, coaches provide 1:1 executive leadership coaching to the selected leaders.

Veronica Wantenaar

Organizational and Individual Change Facilitator, Consultant and Coach

United Kingdom

Veronica is an organizational and individual change facilitator, consultant and coach. She is an ICF PCC and coach mentor as well as a COMENSA (Coaching and Mentoring South Africa) Senior Practitioner and Registered Supervisor. With over 35 years of experience, she has worked with non-profit organizations involved in early childhood development through to aged seniors programs, international conservation, education, emerging entrepreneurs and social outreach. She believes in taking coaching to areas that were previously unable to access it, so helping to build a more equal society for the future. Veronica has over 35 years of experience in business consulting and change management in the UK, Europe and across Africa, working in diverse industries such as government, financial services, retail, education, healthcare and community /NGO. She added coaching to the mix over 10 years ago as she could see that many individuals and organizations struggled with change and needed the additional support that coaching brings. Having run her own businesses, she could understand the many requirements and challenges that leaders face. Her experience has led her to believe that as individuals we have many roles to play in our lives, both personal and professional, and we want to be the best version of ourselves in all of them, whilst staying true to our values. That insight underpins all of Veronica’s work with her clients, assisting them to adapt to their changing world while retaining their integrity. Veronica trained as an Integral Coach where the focus is on the individual and how they are in relationship to others and to the systems of which they are part, both personally and professionally. Veronica has also been devoting time and energy over the last ten years to working with non-profit organizations and communities to enable them to engage more effectively and strategically with their work and stakeholders. Veronica has facilitated focus groups, community building events and training programs for a variety of individuals and organizations that include teachers, emerging entrepreneurs, youths, health workers and professional organizations.

Liliana Jurado

Executive Leadership Coach | Systemic Team Coach

United States

I partner with leaders and teams to develop collective collaborative leadership. During the past 2 years, globalization, digitalization, and high complexity have required organizations to shift from individual leadership to collective leadership development to become more resilient. So, I help leaders enhance their self-awareness, systemic and complex thinking, presence, and leadership maturity to learn, adapt, and thrive amidst these complex dynamics. As a result, they become better-equipped learners to foster cross-functional collaboration, promote collective intelligence, and impact diverse stakeholder groups. Holistically, I address development by engaging the whole person for long-lasting results and a more significant impact. By applying an evidence-based and systemic approach to leadership and coaching, I help teams and leaders increase their performance (what they do now), capability (their ability to perform in the future), and capacity (how they do more with less). Moreover, I draw on my 14+ years of work experience in multiple industries and global organizations, such as the United Nations, to bring a multicultural perspective and support my clients the best. In addition, I am pursuing an M.A. in Human Development and a Ph.D. in Organizational Development and Change at Fielding University, and I am a bilingual business professional (MBA). I am a Professional Certified Coach (CPC, PCC) by the University of Miami and ICF, a Certified Team Coach Practitioner through EMCC and GTCI, and a graduate student of the Evidence Based Coaching for Organizational Leadership Program from Fielding University. Additionally, I am certified in Conversational Intelligence, Narrative Coaching, and the Leadership Circle Profile and DISC assessments.

Grace Chikowi

My coach was extremely the best and she supported me really well to get myself established in my new position as a country manager. Se raised my self esteem and she gave me confidence that sometimes growth and learning comes through errors but the best you can be is to learn from your errors. She supported me with management skills but also learning from my supervisors. We always compiled adjectives that guided our discussions and they always motivated and guided me.

Ismael Arouca

The coaching for me was very good and important, I was in a phase where for the first time I was taking over the position of director of a large company with The Hunger Project Mozambique, coaching helped me to identify better ways to lead a team and make changes as a way to improve the work. And now I feel that I can lead without problems.

Montserrat Salazar Gamboa

Having the opportunity to have a coachy in my language and with my cultural context helped a lot to recognize languages, behaviors and challenges to work towards. Being able to chat with someone who doesn't have an "eye" on programmatic helps to focus on improvements as a person that will be reflected at work.

I was a sceptic and a first timer to coaching. But after meeting and engaging with my coach that has changed forever for me. I received coaching during a very turbulent time in my organization. We had to change our operational model to adapt to new laws in the country and cope with anxiety and uncertainty as COVID raged. Her attentiveness to me, nurturing approach to coaching, patience, management gems that she shared with me because of her diverse experience and working with teams from varied backgrounds, helped me navigate the turbulent times fabulously. While there was a storm raging outside, she centered me so that my energy and thoughts were focused on self, team and organization. Her coaching was like white noise - it helped me focus on the bigger picture and rise above irritations and annoyances.

Samuel Mutambo

Samuel Mutambo

National Program Director, The Hunger Project

From the inception of EthicalCoach, my expectation was that I will be taught on issues I was raising where I needed to understand. But as we progressed, I realized that I was to find solutions, suggestions my self on the issues I needed understanding. For example, I could propose a topic say, how to become a good mentor to staff and people around me. The Coach would ask me again on how I think I can become a good mentor to staff and people around me. Then I would start thinking and explaining according to my understanding on how I can be a good mentor. In the process, almost all the answers were still coming from myself of course with the guidance from the coach. This made me realize that every individual has solution to what can make him or her better in any area of life, what lacks is someone to help you realize the potential in you. This relates to what is being promoted globally - "Community led Development". In this case, it can be called "Individual Led Development".



This coaching experience helped me identify what was missing in order to embrace my leadership. At first it was difficult for me to declare myself leader, I thought there were a lot of things missing. However, I identified that the thing that was holding me, was fear, as we say in THP, I had a resignation mentality. It required a mindset shift that sometimes was painful and sometimes joyful. It was also a really hard year and it helped me to go through the obstacles we faced.
