The Hunger Project
Joining the global UN commitment to ending hunger by 2030, at DECJUBA we have a long-standing partnership with The Hunger Project & have just committed to a $1 million, 8-year journey, to build an epicentre to help the community of Oruka become self-reliant.
The Hunger Project is a not-for-profit organisation committed to ending global hunger. The project recognises that global change is most effective when communities are trained to be self-reliant. So that’s exactly what The Hunger Project does – train women and give them the confidence to be the change & assist in mobilising their communities. #BeTheChange
An epicentre is at the centre of 10-15 villages that houses community programs & services to educate, train & mobilise the community to meet their basic needs.

As a team we are committed to real, sustainable long term change that will impact lives ... we don’t have the solutions but we are on board to #bethechange

During May, 10 DECJUBA team members embarked on a game changing journey to the Oruka Village in Uganda, learning more about THP’s approach to ending world hunger & truly understanding the powerful impact of our partnership will have on the Oruka Community!

Leadership Team Visit India
In 2018 our leadership team embarked on a life- changing visit to India with The Hunger Project, where they had the ability to meet incredible women and saw firsthand the amazing work of The Hunger Project does.

This trip was the inspiration behind the introduction of our facilitated Oruka journey & #gamechanger program… there’s nothing quite like seeing first hand the impact hard work truly makes.
