What is The Sonder Project anyway?

The Sonder Project is a global nonprofit organization founded to spread awareness, offer hope, and offer a hand up to those suffering the most. We focus on high impact projects, bringing together other NGOs to offer proven, sustainable solutions aimed at ending extreme poverty in remote parts of the world and fighting hunger domestically. Our international projects include building schools to educate boys and girls equally, providing safe drinking water, and coordinating deworming campaigns to allow healthy children to thrive and learn.

Currently, 1 out of every 8 individuals worldwide (1.2 billion people) are living in extreme poverty, surviving on less than $1.25 a day. The good news is that the end of extreme poverty is fully achievable within our lifetime if we all jump behind the effort. The Sonder Project was formed to ensure that we are doing our part to help achieve this reality.

“Sonder” – the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own … each with a story to tell; each with a story worth hearing.
