Apply for Women for Zero Hunger Program in Africa with Up to €30,000 Grant

The Women in Africa (WIA) organization invites applications for the Women for Zero Hunger Program, aiming to assist associations in combating hunger and food insecurity across Africa.

Launched in 2016, WIA Philanthropy is the first international platform dedicated to the economic development and support of African women entrepreneurs. At WIA Philanthropy, they are convinced that Pan-African women contribute greatly, through their actions, to the change and impact they bring to the continent’s progress.

Stop hunger acts locally and sustainably for a hunger-free world. Created 25 years ago by Sodexo employees, Stop Hunger is a global non-profit network mobilized to eliminate food insecurity by leadership activities going beyond food aid, with a priority: empowering women.

The top 7 non-profit organizations will be pre-selected by WIA Philanthropy and Stop Hunger before being presented to the international jury of the program, which will select 3 associations.
