Rise Against Hunger Africa’s commitment to you, our stakeholders, partners and beneficiaries is to ensure that appropriate governance structures exist that support best practice when it comes to Nutrition and Hunger Eradication in South Africa. It is also to ensure that we engage our resources in a transparent and cost effective manner that ensures food sustainability and it utilized for the purpose it was intended for and in the best interest of our beneficiaries whom we support.
The second half of 2016 has seen continued growth in the ECD’s we support directly as part of our ECD Connect Programme. We have now reached our target of over 200 crèches in Gauteng which we engage with on a monthly basis. There is also a big drive to increase the
ECD’s in our programme in the Western Cape. Thanks to our partnership with PMB Community Chest and other Durban based donors, we were also able to increase the number of children we feed in the KwaZulu Natal area.
We are currently in talks with various organisations to increase the number of partnerships we have, which will not only assist us in packing more meals, but assist us in reaching more beneficiaries.
This year Stop Hunger Now will open a new branch in the Eastern Cape. The branch, which will be situated in East London will be opened before July 2017.
