What does The Hunger Project do?
The Hunger Project’s goal is to end world hunger by 2030. The Hunger Project’s approach is different – they shift the mindsets of women and men so they transform into leaders for the sustainable end of hunger. Then, through The Hunger Project’s programs such as education, microfinance, agriculture and health, they empower people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to break the poverty cycle themselves.
Donations to The Hunger Project have a powerful impact in empowering people to change their lives.
$25 could educate 20 mothers about locally available nutritious food they can feed their babies and prevent malnutrition.
$50 could fund functional adult literacy training for two women so that they can learn to read and write.
$230 could train one Elected Woman in India to be an effective local council member and ban child marriage in her village.
$1000 could provide 16 women with a microfinance loan and financial literacy training so they can start a small business, earn an income and support their families.
$2500 could train 21 volunteer leaders who will educate families about the importance of keeping their daughters in school so that they marry later.
$5000 could train 42 local volunteer leaders who will educate mothers about the importance of pre-natal care to ensure their babies are delivered safely.
I've reached my first $1000!
As part of this journey I'm reading 'Unlikely Leaders' by Cathy Burke, former CEO of The Hunger Project Australia. In her book she quotes an old proverb which says: 'If you want to travel fast, travel alone. If you want to travel far, travel with others.'
Thank you so much to all my supporters - this is a big challenge and will only be possible through the power of the collective!
