Read an inspiring update from 2016 Clinton Hunger Leadership Award winner Balanding Manneh about his work to end hunger in The Gambia.
“Since winning the award, I have come to understand that ending hunger requires collaboration because it is an extensive problem that no single entity can solve,” Manneh said. “We can make a tremendous difference individually, but when we collaborate with others and share best practices, that is when our impact becomes even greater. Winning the Clinton Award has helped my organization grow, impact many additional people, and has helped me become a better leader.”
