Programme
Throughout Africa, The Hunger Project’s Epicenter Strategy mobilizes the population of a cluster of villages within a 10km radius to create an “epicenter,” or a center from which community-led development emanates to the surrounding areas. Through this fully integrated development strategy, community members establish and manage their own programs to address food security, nutrition, health, education, microfinance, water and sanitation. Epicenters follow four distinct phases over a period of about five to eight years on a path toward to sustainable self-reliance. Majete 2 Epicenter is currently in Phase 2, during which the villagers build the epicenter building. The building houses a food bank, credit union, health center, library, community meeting hall, preschool, classrooms for literacy training and food-processing equipment. It’s an achievement that is almost unimaginable to the villagers. The successful construction of the epicenter building is the tipping point in the five-year process. Once this has been achieved, the process of calling forth self-reliance becomes irreversible. Majete II epicenter serves 29 villages with a total population of 6,461 women, men and children.
During 2014, 227 women and 219 men were trained at Majete 2 Epicenter in Vision, Commitment and Action workshops, which build leadership skills and empower individuals to take actions to improve their communities’ food security, health, gender equality, and education.
