Before The Hunger Project came to his community, Dennis was living in severe hunger.
“Sometimes I found small jobs to do in exchange for food. Sometimes I would have to beg for food. Sometimes I would have to steal from my neighbours. Often, I would have to fall asleep without eating. I nearly died of hunger,” Dennis said.
His life was transformed because someone like you invested in him. Dennis attended farming technique workshops set up by The Hunger Project in his community of Champiti. By applying what he learned, he tripled the yield of his family’s farm. His family now have enough food for the entire year and even have some produce left over to sell locally.
Thanks to entrepreneurship training and a microfinance loan he received from The Hunger Project, Dennis and his wife Bernadette are now the proud owners of a grocery store.
“I am transformed… My three-year-old son Cheos eats three times a day, every day. He has never slept on an empty stomach,” Dennis said.
Right now, there are people who are living in severe hunger and urgently need your support. Please make a tax-deductible donation before June 30 and partner with people like Dennis. Your investment will make sure people, families and communities can achieve their vision of ending poverty and hunger.
