International Women’s Day – March 8

Next Tuesday is International Women’s Day and to celebrate we thought we would share some stories of inspiring women who are changing their communities in so many positive ways.

The first is the story of Musi Dei. Musi is an elected woman representative in the Khorda District of India. Musi is a laborer, from the lowest caste and with no formal education. She has participated in training provided by The Hunger Project and our local partners in India.

Since becoming elected for her district, her village has had the following improvements: 2 wells built, 2 taps with running fresh, clean water installed, electricity supplied to the village, 35 toilets in the village, drainage, improved rice planting techniques for better crops, and last but not least 17 concrete houses built.

One woman with a vision of a healthy happy village – succeeding. To help us help women like Musi Dei continue the amazing work she is doing in her village consider becoming an investor with The Hunger Project. There are several options on how to get involved.
