Women and girls are still disadvantaged and oppressed in Indian society today.
According to the law, 30 to 50 percent of women in India must be represented in the government. The Hunger Project trains women in leadership workshops lasting three to four days. The knowledge they acquire enables them to assume their function and responsibility in the local council (“panchayat”) in a stronger position, so that they can lead their village out of hunger independently.
In Africa, too, women are trained in workshops by The Hunger Project to assume key positions in their communities. Thanks to the decisions made by these women, essential measures are introduced and important goals are achieved in order to overcome hunger in their villages on a sustainable basis.
