WHAT WE DO
We want to be at the FOREFRONT of change in underdeveloped communities. By leveraging the diverse skill sets of our team and local partners, we provide innovative solutions that will achieve lasting sustainability. Our approach involves four phases:
PHASE ONE: CLEAN WATER 💦
750 million people lack access to clean water. That is 2.5x the population of the United States. Other areas of sustainability cannot be achieved without meeting this basic need first. That is why our first phase is dedicated to building wells that will provide water that is accessible and safe to drink.
PHASE TWO: EDUCATION 📚
57 million children around the globe do not have access to schools. Education is crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty, which is why our second phase is dedicated to building schools. Our long-term hope is that the students will attend college and reinvest their newly acquired skills and knowledge into their communities.
PHASE THREE: MEDICAL CARE 🏥
75-85% of people in developing nations cannot receive medical treatment, which means most of the world is suffering needlessly. We want to alleviate this dire issue through the construction of clinics that will provide ethical, accessible and affordable healthcare. A healthy community means more children can attend school and more adults can enter the workforce.
PHASE FOUR: SOCIAL JUSTICE 🏡
27 million people worldwide are victims of human trafficking. We want to build safehouses that will provide homes, vocational training and counseling for marginalized members of a community, particularly those who are victims of sexual abuse and human trafficking. Our goal is to empower more women to enter the workforce and start their own businesses.
THE MULTIPLICATION EFFECT 👬👭
When we choose to invest in a community with our four-phase approach, we are committing to them for the long haul. This first community is what we call an "alpha site." Once the alpha site achieves sustainability, our local partners will help them to use their new resources to equip neighboring communities ("beta sites"). The ultimate result is a global network of change where people are helping each other to move development forward.
OUR LOCAL PARTNERS 🙌
Leveraging the expertise of local partners is a critical part of our four-phase strategy. We work with our partners closely to identify areas with the highest need and create localized solutions.
Behind all of our projects, we champion new ways of looking at old problems. Local, community-based solutions means working with what we already have. This isn't a limitation--but rather, a chance to spark creativity, showing that innovation is part of the solution.
