“I assure that I will never be tired of sharing the knowledge I have to help others in ending hunger and poverty.” - Adélia Mate, a Hunger Project Partner in Mozambique

When Amina was asked how she feels about Atuobikrom Epicenter graduating to self-reliance in 2016, she said “I know if I take a loan, will work, pay it back and take charge of my on affairs. I have no fears. I have confidence in our leadership and think we’ll be able to continue without The Hunger Project”. ~ Amina Kasim, a member and shareholder of the Atuobikrom Epicenteer Microfinance Program Credit Committee in Ghana
