The improvement of the data collection system implemented by THP-Mexico has led to an increase in women's involvement in Cooperative General Assembly meetings and workshops regarding vegetable gardens and textile handcraft markets in 2012.
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.
THP-México arrived in the village of Morelos in 2010 and from the start, Simona was present in every Hunger Project workshop. It took a few days for her to gain confidence, but gradually she began to express her feelings, discovering that these feelings where very similar to those of other women in the village. Now she feels safer and more united with the women and the men of her village.
