My first step...

I have joined the Hunger Project and their Awaken Leadership Programme.  Their mission is to end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centred strategies to empower a community.  I have decided to do this as part of my journey to realising a Vision of someday helping my own community by learning first hand their strategies of empowerment. 

Each participant in the Awaken Leadership Programme commits to make a huge difference in both theirs and others lives by raising a minimum of $10,000 each for The Hunger Project. The money raised is invested in The Hunger Project's programmes in India, Africa, Bangladesh and Latin America that empower people to make change and live a life of self-reliance and dignity.

I have always believed in the concept of “teach people to fish”.  I have experienced in my role that being able to empower someone to take ownership of their own challenges and find a way forward has a lasting positive impact. What I love about the Hunger project is that they are not about giving food to the hungry… it’s about providing tools, education and empowering the women in the community to end their own cycle of hunger.

I can't wait to experience the impact the project's strategies have by going to Malawi (at my own expense) next year and see the difference it can make on a bigger scale.

Myself with 10 other remarkable people have embarked on a journey to AWAKEN: leadership and potential to create a world that works. Our trip to Malawi in 2019 will help deepen our understanding of the work of The Hunger Project and to truly reflect on what we are capable of. 

Your donation and support to reach my fundraising goal for The Hunger Project will go a long way to empowering women and men to enact change within their own communities to create a brighter future without hunger or poverty. I thank you for your support.
