Since 2017, DECJUBA has launched six collaborations alongside The Hunger Project, and raised $1.3m to support two communities in Uganda, Mpigi & Oruka, in their goal of becoming self-reliant.
We never quite imagined just how much was possible.
Thanks to your support, 2020 marked an incredible milestone in our longstanding partnership with The Hunger Project. One of the DECJUBA-funded epicentres, Mpigi, successfully reached self-reliance. This means they have demonstrated they have the leadership, skills and resources they need to continue their own development journey independently & lead their own vision towards a future free of hunger & poverty.
In December 2020, Mpigi, successfully reached the incredible milestone of self-reliance – the ultimate goal of The Hunger Project.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
The community now have the leadership, skills, and resources they need to continue their own development journey independently leading their own vision towards a future free of hunger & poverty.
At DECJUBA we’ve also committed to another $1 million of funding alongside The Hunger Project.
This will support the second epicentre, Oruka, to reach self-reliance. As well as support a number of other THP projects with the goal of creating significant, transformative change.
