Alicia and 20 other passionate Australian business women will travel to Senegal to mentor and support local women to rise above poverty.

To participate in the Hunger Project Alicia first had to go through a competitive application and interview program and raise a minimum of $10,000 for the program’s delivery.

This week at a function at Little Beach Boathouse, Alicia surpassed her initial goal of $10,000.

Alicia Cameron told News Of The Area, “Every cent raised for the program will go to supporting the women of Senegal.”

She believes that through supporting women in poverty stricken communities you can break the cycle of poverty.

“I am overwhelmed by the support and very grateful to the community for helping me to participate in the Hunger Project,” she said.

Alicia’s fundraising has not stopped and there will be a business breakfast held to raise more funds on 22 November, and she is also offering business mentoring sessions.

As a part of the trip that Alicia will undertake to Africa in February 2018, she will visit the school of St Jude in Arusha, Tanzania which is managed by Rotary and provides education to around 1800 young people in Africa.

All funds raised for the The Hunger Project are tax deductible and will go to assist women in the developing nation of Senegal.

Alicia is paying her own way to participate in the project.
