Our Latest Giving Project - Uganda 2019
In March 2019, we are travelling to Uganda, East Africa as part of The Human Kind Project leadership immersion trip.
We will learn first hand how the communities we are visiting are becoming self-reliant through leadership programs that are empowering individuals to create sustainable, long term change within their communities.
We are raising $200,000 before we go in March!
100% of this will go towards investing in epicentre projects where communities are inspired to act to meet their own basic needs and break the cycle of poverty.
HOW CAN WE HELP END WORLD HUNGER?
The Human Kind Project has a big mission aligned with the Global Goals to end extreme poverty and world hunger by 2030. The Human Kind Project believes that we can be the zero hunger generation. Ending Hunger starts with people.
The projects we are supporting and visiting are a part of a global vision to empower women and men living in rural villages in Africa, India, Bangladeshand Latin America to end their own hunger and to break the cycle of poverty.
Hungry people themselves are the key to ending hunger. In partnership,they can unleash their vision, commitment and leadership so they can feed themselves and their families.
We know it’s possible for hunger to end, and that our generation has thepower to end it once and for all.
In our experience, people who live in hunger are not the problem – they are the solution. We don’t see a billion mouths to feed, we see a billion human beings who are enterprising and resilient. The work, therefore, is to unlock their capacity, creativity and leadership so they can end their own hunger. That’s what we do. - The Hunger Project
Investing in people is key to ending world hunger and breaking the cycle of poverty .
EVERY DOLLAR GOES A LONG WAY
$25 Provides workbooks and chalk to one of our nursery schools in Africa so that they can continue to learn to read and practice writing, creating a better future.
$50 Could provide anti-malarial bed nets to five families. This alone reduces the risk particularly for children under the age of 5 from severe illness, disease and death.
$100 Is the size of the first micro- finance loan for a budding female entrepreneur. This is enough to purchase a pig to farm or purchase equipment to start small businesses in sewing, or hairdressing.
$500 Could allow a community to purchase food-processing equipment reducing the amount of time it takes to prepare dietary staples such as maize our. This allows more time for women to spend earning income and educating their children.
$1000 Could enable a community to drill a borehole to provide safe drinking water.
$5000 Could train 25 HIV Animators in Africa. If empowered with accurate information, and freed from social taboos, attitudes and behaviors that fuel the epidemic, the people of Africa have proven that they can protect themselves and their families.
