Empowering Local Communities
Our projects strive to create livelihood that offers stability and dignity to people and their families. This drives sustainable change and generational impact in the communities where we work.
Our global humanitarian projects directly employ over 100 people across 50 disciplines in West Africa, India, and Mexico. In rural villages, these opportunities for regular and stable employment, otherwise unprecedented in the area, sustain individuals, families, and entire regions. Our microenterprise business model ensures projects are self-sustaining. Local residents that benefit from these projects are empowered to join the project as staff, becoming agents of change in their own communities.
We address the underlying factors responsible for poor health by directly tailoring to the leading health issues for each community we serve, through our total health centers, community health classes, and health product manufacturing. We integrate a range of holistic healing models, which work with existing health infrastructure, providing preventative health care counseling and public health awareness. All of this is done in a manner that encourages financial self-sufficiency, ensuring that our efforts will continue to expand for generations to come.
We provide the necessary tools for people in rural communities to survive and thrive through our public libraries that offer vocational training, practical development of life skills, and technical knowledge. Providing educational materials to an area of the world where purchasing textbooks is almost equal to the cost of attending school has had an immeasurable impact on the lives of children, adults, and families across the region.
