The Hunger Project has made major strides in its most ambitious program to date: mobilizing women and men across the Eastern Region of Ghana to create epicenters within walking distance of every villager.
The Hunger Project works in partnership with Chirapaq to strengthen and empower a network of 30 indigenous women's organizations. Primarily under women's leadership, these organizations have promoted access to opportunities and the exercise of women's and indigenous rights.
All the epicenter components continued to function and serve the partners in line with Hunger Project methodology. Partners depict a high degree of self-reliance as they seem to be fully in charge of the epicenter activities.
Among the accomplishments of the Jaldo Epicenter, 91 children were vaccinated in the clinic, 60 adults were provided with family planning devices, and 28 mothers were given antenatal and post natal services.
Among its major accomplishments, the Jali epicenter community food bank sold a total of 26.6 metric tons of maize grain, and it earned a total of K622,750 from the sales, bringing the food bank savings to a total of K1,482,077.11.
