In August 2012, The Hunger Project carried out a large-scale outcome evaluation pilot project consisting of in-depth interviews, focus groups and household surveys in Ghana and Malawi. The purpose being to evaluate data collection tools being used in the field and to empower epicenter committees to set priorities and track progress for the overall development of Hunger Project programs.
THP-Ghana welcomed the opening of the new epicenter Fesi Bame with an inauguration ceremony featuring Kpando Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Francis Ganyaglo, and former Country Director of THP-Ghana, Dr. Naana Agyemang-Mensah, among other important guests. More good news for Ghana continued with the completion of the Dogo Nursery School in Toku Epicenter and the next level of construction being reached in a three-classroom project also being undertaken in the Dogo community.
Each year, The Hunger Project joins billions of people around the world in celebrating International Women's Day (IWD) to honor and raise a voice for women around the world. Particularly relevant given recent violent acts against women, this year's IWD theme was “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women.” On March 8, 2013, thousands of women and men partnered with The Hunger Project around the world to advocate for equality, prosperity and empowerment for all women – see how.
