Teams may also be selected to participate in a three-to-six-month Sprint Programme, where they may receive up to USD 100,000 in funding, field access, and hands-on support so that they can test the solution’s impact and scalability for WFP. To facilitate implementation, we help teams identify and connect with a broad network of key stakeholders, including private sector and non-profit experts, donors, mentors and WFP country offices.

Submit your project so that together we can accelerate progress towards zero hunger.
