Invest in Akode so they can reach Self-Reliance!
We are so excited to be partnering with The Hunger Project once again — this time supporting the village of Akode to Self-Reliance!
Over the past 4 years we've securely embedded "Profit for Purpose" into our company fiber and are deeply inspired by the work of The Hunger Project, particularly their 'a hand up, not hand-out', empowerment-centric and education-focused approach; values that so closely align with our own.
Come rain, hail or shine, we are committed to investing in Akode each month and have committed to a minimum of $135,200 to take the village of Akode through to their Self-Reliance ceremony!
That said, over the past number of years, in speaking with our company partners and passionately advocating for the work of The Hunger Project we've been approached a number of times for more information on how to get involved. Whether it be a one-off corporate donation, individual or family contribution or an ongoing commitment, we've had conversations across the spectrum and want to make it really easy to empower people to make an impact.
This page thus serves two purposes: first, to track the contribution of our commitment, but also to make it really easy to get involved and to alleviate the requirement of ongoing commitment, red tape or any other contractual obligations inherent with committing to people, purpose and an entire village journey. Every little bit impacts...!
We are so excited to be along on another journey with a community in partnership with The Hunger Project. We've seen the process roll out and the profound impact it made on our last community; Nchalo and the incredible ripple effects for generations to come! We can't wait to watch the Akode journey unfold and hear the stories; and hopefully experience first-hand on the ground, the power of the human spirit, tenacity and the impact of a vision and action in practice!
In any case - if you're here on this page, reading this, it means you've partnered with us, are interested in our journey or interested in making an impact - to us - they're all equally as powerful so we thank you for your support in any form it comes!
