The Hunger Project
Berns supports the Hunger Project. Through coaching, training and access to microfinance programmes, the aim is to create sustainable communities that can stand on their own two feet.
The programmes improve health, education, farming, water provision and sanitation in the villages. The Hunger Project encourages people to use their democratic rights to gain influence over the decisions taken in their community. They work actively to increase equality by empowering women to become entrepreneurs and take seats in local government.
So far, the Hunger Project has mobilised clusters of villages into 123 epicentres in 8 African countries. Through its Epicentre Strategy, the charity now reaches around 2 million people in Africa.
