Why Unleashed Women? Why THP?
A new report from the UN was recently released stating that world hunger is on the rise: the estimated number of undernourished people increased from 777 million in 2015 to 815 million in 2016. There is overwhelming evidence that the end of world hunger cannot be achieved if gender inequality persists. Women bear the major responsibility for meeting basic needs, yet are systematically denied the resources, freedom of action and voice in decision-making to fulfill that responsibility.
Please join me in my efforts to raise $200 to empower women worldwide to end their own hunger and create a brighter future for all. I have seen firsthand the success of the gender-focused work of The Hunger Project.
Here are some examples of the tangible impact your investment can have:
$25 could provide one person with Functional Adult Literacy training so she can read and write
$60 could provide one woman with a microfinance loan and financial literacy training so she can start a small business, earn an income, and support her family
$120 could train one volunteer leader in Africa who will educate families about the importance of keeping their daughters in school so that they marry later
$230 could train one Elected Woman in India to be an effective local council member and ban child marriage in her village
Together we can unleash our potential to make a difference in the world – invest now!
