I’m so excited! I’ve just found out that I’ve been approved for a grant from the Million Dollar Round Table in the United States for UDS$1,000 to support my work with The Hunger Project. Woohoo!
After my visits to Uganda and Malawi, I’ve become even more passionate about the empowerment of women in global communities and the drive to end hunger. It frustrates me that so many of us have so much, while so many struggle with so little.
Did you Know? A donation of even $50 can help give 3 women a micro-finance loan to start or grow a small business to create further income for their families. We drop that no problem on a meal out or a few drinks with friends.
And here’s an example of what a couple of weeks groceries, just $500 is able to achieve:
- Train 400 mothers on feeding their children locally available nutritious food, so their children grow up healthy; or
- Give 30 women a start-up micro-finance loan to start or grow a small business, to create income for her family; or
- Empower 15 women to become local volunteer leaders and train their fellow villagers on issues such as education and sanitation.
But, if you’d rather spend your hard-earned dosh on a table at a fabulous restaurant spoiling your loved one on Valentine’s Day, I completely get that too. So why not bid on A Table to End Hunger and empower others to put food on theirs. Get in quick!
I’ve been so amazed by the incredible people who’ve supported my journey to date and those who’ve jumped on board and joined the movement.
I’d love to welcome you to become Unleashed with me again for the coming year!
