Hiking to end poverty and hunger
This group of honor students from the John Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University just wrapped up a fundraising campaign for Grameen Foundation this April— helping us continue to grow and strengthen our programs aimed at creating a world without hunger and poverty.
These motivated students approached local businesses for donations, designed special Grameen Foundation t-shirts, and organized a Saturday hike of which proceeds were donated to Grameen Foundation.
The students utilized their business skill sets— marketing, sales, logistics, and more— to create a highly successful fundraising campaign supporting Grameen Foundation's financial inclusion programs. All of us at Grameen Foundation are so thankful and inspired by these student's passion for our mission and the women we serve.
Grameen Foundation helps the world's poorest people reach their full potential, connecting their determination and skills with the resources they need by providing access to essential financial services and information on agriculture and health.
