Set your clocks! Have your donations DOUBLED this Christmas through The Hunger Project’s Christmas campaign


Big Give Christmas Appeal 2015 microfinance women Senegal


Make your investment in the end of hunger go further this Christmas through The Big Give Christmas Challenge where donations are doubled through this match funding campaign.


This December invest in our microfinance programme led by women, for women, in rural villages in Senegal


Did you know?

  • Of 223 million people who live in hunger in Sub-Saharan Africa, two thirds are women and children, despite the fact that women subsistence farmers do 90% of the work of processing food crops and providing household water and wood, as well as 80% of the work of food storage and transport
  • In Senegal, almost 30% of the population lives on less than £1 per day and 14% of the children are malnourished. Women are also much more likely to be poor, under-educated and malnourished than men


Our Senegal microfinance programme will be implemented in 10 epicentres, serving 183,000 people, and aims to:

  • Train women through microfinance and income generating workshops
  • Distribute loans and generate savings deposits
  • Empower women at a village level to play a strong role in their community, and increase their ability to earn a decent living for themselves and their families, ending their hunger for good
