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.
Enemore Epicenter is currently in Phase 4, during which villagers enter their transition to self-reliance and The Hunger Project begins to withdraw financial support. The epicenter community affirms its partnerships, ensures funding streams from revenue-generating activities and begins relying on its leadership structures for future growth. Enemore epicenter serves 21 villages with a total population of 7,709 women, men and children in the Gurage zone of Ethiopia.
During 2014, 87 people participated in The Hunger Project food security workshops at Enemore Epicenter, through which they learn sustainable practices to improve crop yields. Also in 2014, Enemore community partners added 700 kgs of grain to their community food bank, which provides reliable, pest-free storage for excess harvest and ensures the food security of villagers during the off-season
