The Hunger Project
The Hunger Project is a non-profit organisation committed to ending hunger and poverty with a focus on women. The organisation is active globally and implements programmes in 12 countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Owing to engaged, local volunteers, the Hunger Project’s programmes reached some 16 million people in 2017.
Since 2016 Indutrade invests in one of the Hunger Project’s “epicenters” in Asenama, in eastern Ghana. An epicenter is a community hub that meets people’s basic needs, such as opportunities to earn a livelihood, food security, education, gender equality, health and the environment.
Each epicenter is run by a democratically elected committee, and the building is owned by the people in the community. The Hunger Project works to help people themselves to drive their development forward, as this is when changes become sustainable over the long term. An example is providing education in business economics and microloans from the epicenter’s micro-bank. In this way, people can start their own businesses and earn an income from their farming as well as from their businesses.
During 2018 our grants were used for the following, among other things:
- to educate women in running a business and leadership
- to educate farmers in farming technologies
- to start new companies
- to educate village inhabitants in democracy and sustainable development
