Working with leaders and community members, we help identify the specific needs of the village. Although each village is unique, some of the most critical needs in the areas where we work include:
Access to clean water is a top priority, and it is vital to the health and survival of families. Building wells, latrines, and teaching hygiene skills is the first step in improving the health of children and families.
Many villages where we work don't have a school, and children walk for miles to the nearest school, or the school is inadequate. Classes are often held outdoors, under a tree for shade. Most families cannot afford even small school fees or uniforms for their children. Knowing that education is the key to a better future for poor children, we focus on improving access so they can attend school regularly, close to home.
In most rural villages, families depend on farming or animal herding for survival. Drought, flooding and disasters can severely affect food security, and parents struggle to feed their children. You'll help provide business opportunities, training and financial services to establish reliable sources of income. We also provide training, tools and seeds for improved, sustainable farming techniques. As these changes occur and vital needs are met, you'll see hope grow on the faces of the people in this village. You'll watch and take part in the transformation, knowing lives are being improved in lasting ways.
For $33 a month for three years, you will take part in an amazing transformation. We need partners like you to make it happen. With your ongoing gift, you will receive a quarterly email update about how your gift is changing the lives of individual families. Our promise to you is that you will see real and lasting impact as lives are saved and transformed.
