The Hunger Project.
More than 20,000 people came together for this historic event to celebrate the accomplishments of the Hunger Project and launch strategies for the years to come.
On 26 October 2002, at the commemoration of its 25th anniversary, the Hunger Project (HP) hosted a global satellite event connecting people from 23 HP countries. It was the first time in the history of the project that colleagues from so many countries were connected in real-time, via satellite and big screen TVs. 9,000 social workers from Bangladesh thus celebrated with grassroots reporters from Bolivia and global activists from Japan.
Four volunteer interpreters covered the event in the following language combinations:
Interpreting English -> French and English -> German.
