At Jungle we are passionate about inspiring people and helping unleash talent and creativity.
We largely do this by working with businesses and entrepreneurs but we are also proud of the charity work we do to ‘give something back’.
For 2017 we are delighted to announce that we are the first Ambassadors of The Hunger Project’s Unleashed Women Leadership Programme.
The Unleashed Women’s Leadership programme aims to bring hundreds of dynamic, inspirational, motivated women within Third World Countries, together, to embark on a collaborative and challenging journey of self-discovery and leadership development to deliver The Hunger Project’s mission of empowering women and girls to end hunger and poverty.
Jungle CEO Teresa Boughey is passionate about the development of Women in Leadership; she was appointed to one of only 50 roles in the UK as a Female Entrepreneur Ambassador and is a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Women in Enterprise.
Speaking on the partnership she said: “I am extremely proud to be sponsors of The Hunger Project, Unleashed Women’s Leadership Programme. The work they do to empower women and girls to eradicate hunger through local education and empowerment is truly inspiring. This ethos aligns with the values we share at Jungle which is to help companies embrace women leadership and supporting female leaders to flourish”
Sophie Noonan, Country Director, The Hunger Project UK added: “Unleashed Women is a movement of women who are doing the extra-ordinary, who are pushing their boundaries to express their sisterhood. They are entepreneurs, professionals, mums, students, artists, authors who want to mobilise communities, become agents of change and support the millions of women and girls all over the world who are ending hunger and poverty in their home and villages. This is why we are extremely happy to welcome as our first Ambassador brand, Jungle HR – an award winning strategic HR consultancy who deliver a range of bespoke programmes to deliver change through people.”
The donation will:
• Train 8,000 mothers on feeding their children locally available nutritious food so their children grow up healthy.
• Give 600 women a start-up microfinance loan to start, grow a small business, or improve their home.
• Empower 300 women to become animators. An animator is a local volunteer leader who train her fellow villagers on issues such as education, sanitation and stopping child marriage.
The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organisation committed to the sustainable end of world hunger.
The organisation, which launched in 1977, works in 18,000 communities, reaching 19 million people in Africa, South Asia and Latin America, empowering women and men living in rural villages to become the agents of their own development, ending hunger in their communities
The Hunger Project’s vision is of a world where every woman, man and child leads a healthy, fulfilling life of self-reliance and dignity.
