Progress at Osonson Epicenter

The Hunger Project, children standing in a grassy yardToday, the Osonson Epicenter has completed its building, a major asset to the community and the physical focal point of community-driven change. A team from JMJ visited Ghana in July 2010 where they took part in the formal commissioning of the epicenter building. A mechanized borehole provides a safe, clean and convenient supply of water, especially for the epicenter’s clinic and nurses’ quarters. Providing a source of convenient water also means that women who spent hours every day trekking to secure water now have more time and energy to work their farms, start small businesses, focus on schooling and other productive pursuits.

In the period July-December 2010, the following has taken place:

"Funding an epicenter is a significant increase in JMJ's long-term support of The Hunger Project. This commitment in action inspires me personally as it is a clear demonstration of our desire to make a difference in the world—enabling us to do so as a community and an organization." - Steve Portner, CEO, JMJ Associates
