In 1976, a group of residents from various Greenwich parishes met to discuss how they might join forces to help…More allieviate hunger in the most poverty stricken areas of the world. That group is now the Greenwich World Hunger Association (GWHA), a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit volunteer organization that solicits funds to fund small, income or food-producing projects.
Recent projects include emergency relief in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, a sustainable farm for a school in Nepal, and the provision for vented, fuel efficient stoves that decrease risk of burns and respiratory diseases for families in Guatemala.
Grants are typically in the $2,000 to 5,000 range. Applications and instructions are available on the GWHA website.
