The most effective way to break the cycle of poverty, is to strategically empower whole communities, with sustainable holistic models that are reproducible, transforming large areas, family by family, village by village.
For example... We know that education is one of the key elements in helping a community to break the cycle of poverty. In areas of great poverty, the children are often the work force of a family. Adding a school feeding program to a local school encourages parents, struggling to provide food for their children, to send them to school. Having a vegetable garden attached to a school or orphan project, where the children participate in growing nutritious food for themselves and their community, encourages families to have their own garden plots and educates on longer term healthy eating.
On these pages you will be introduced to several excellent projects we have partnered closely with; helping them develop their models and funding large parts of their programs to help them become sustainable. Each is working within local communities and with young people to empower them to transform their own families and communities.
