Strategy Implementation

Making Strides in Eradicating Extreme Poverty and Hunger

We build partnerships and raise resources for the world’s most vulnerable people by providing customized services tailored to help communities manage their own development needs.

 

Through different programs, we provide clean water, food and nutrition, education, relief and resiliency, global health, community development, environmental sustainability, child survival, and women and girls empowerment.

 

We are breaking the cycle of extreme poverty and violence through education and sustainable job creation in the Nuba Mountains, Darfur, Blue Nile, South Sudan, and Refugee Camps and slums in Kenya and Uganda.

Health

Effective Healthcare Interventions and Immunizations

Poverty and health are strongly linked. Health problems can plunge people into poverty or keep them from escaping it, and those in poverty are more likely to suffer disease because of lack of treatment.

Using Solar Panels to Provide Clean Energy

Solar panels require almost no maintenance as a normal amount of wind and rain is all that is typically required to keep the panels operating at near 100% of their rated efficiency. We harness solar energy to power villages.

Sustainability

Addressing Climate Change by Conserving Environment

Climate change has resulted in long droughts causing starvation. Green growth strategies can tackle these challenges without undermining growth potential through reduced pollution and emissions.
