The Hunger Project joined the international community in celebrating International Women's Day in March 2012. Check out the highlights from the International Women's Day celebrations in our programs around the world, including a forum for junior high school girls in Ghana; an experience-sharing visit to a model community in Ethiopia; and conferences in Burkina Faso.
December 1, 2011 was World AIDS Day – a day when women, men and children of all walks around the world stand together to declare their ongoing commitment to ending the epidemic that is HIV/AIDS. The theme of World AIDS Day 2011 was an ambitions hard-line message: “Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS-related deaths.” Learn more about how our programs in Senegal, Uganda and Ghana celebrated the day.
In 2006, we launched our Scale-Up Initiative in Ghana. The goal: to implement our Epicenter Strategy in Africa on a large enough scale so that it could be proven as a successful, cost-effective and replicable model that could be expanded and adopted by governments in their national development plans. All 36 epicenters have now been constructed and significant progress is being made on all fronts within the epicenter communities in terms of the provision of health care, food production and more!
