Since February, Lorena Vázquez Ordaz, Country Director of The Hunger Project-Mexico, has been working alongside other international civil society organizations in creating policy recommendations on green growth and sustainable development for G20 leaders. Lorena actively participated in the recent G20 summit in Los Cabos, Mexico.
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.
