By Business Chicks | Feb 01, 12 09:17 AM

Business Chicks is very proud to be partnering with The Hunger Project on two leadership trips to Uganda and Bangladesh

In partnership with the fabulous team at The Hunger Project Australia led by the phenomenal Cathy Burke, we're offering forty Premium Members the chance to unlock the creativity, leadership, entrepreneurialism and productivity of the poorest of the poor in both Bangladesh and Uganda.

This is a mutually transformative opportunity. On the trips, you'll leave behind unconscious beliefs that hold you back, sharing an experience with supportive, amazing women as well as developing your leadership skills.

*Up to 20 Business Chicks are able to participate in each of these once in a life-time trips 

*Both trips will be 7 days in duration and you can only participate in one trip, either Bangladesh or Uganda.

*You must be a Premium or Corporate Business Chicks member to register your interest to attend

*There will be a pre trip interview and selection process

Pre Trip:

*You'll begin the process of transformation and leadership through your fundraising, reading and pre trip learning

*You'll attend a conference call with the other participants to be briefed on The Hunger Project program and what to expect (this is also a great way of getting to know others on the trip)

*A group will be set up here on our website so you can interact online prior to taking the trip

*Business Chicks and The Hunger Project will be here to support you

A bit about The Hunger Project

The Hunger Project is a global, not-for-profit, strategic organisation committed to the sustainable end of world hunger. They work in 12 countries in Africa, South Asia and Latin America to develop effective, bottom-up strategies to end hunger and poverty.

At the core of The Hunger Project is a belief that the hungry themselves (the poor, illiterate women) are the key resource in ending hunger and poverty.

By unlocking the creativity, leadership, entrepreneurialism and productivity of the poorest of the poor, leaders are built. More often than not these leaders are women.

The Hunger Project now have women running banks in remote villages, women bringing water to their villages, women setting up small businesses and women becoming leaders in their communities.

Ending hunger is a global issue and requires new thinking, partnerships and ways of being to solve it. Bringing leadership from Australia- financial, social and personal- in an authentic partnership with the women (and men) in villages to end hunger is necessary, appropriate and transformative.

Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it? best bookshelf speakers under 500 Reply
