Evaluating the Hunger Project in Ghana
The Hunger Project/Epicenter strategy is a community based development strategy that will positively affect health, education, empowerment, and consumption.
The investigators propose a randomized controlled design that will measure how The Hunger Projects' intervention affects the lives of Ghanaians. A pre-intervention baseline survey of approximately 4,000 households with over 20,000 individuals and two follow-up surveys of the same households will be conducted over the ten year experimental period.
