As a grassroots movement we are
impacting communities and changing lives
Whether it’s a young girl who no longer has to walk miles to collect water, a mother who can provide for her children thanks to business training, or a school that can now grow nutritious food for their students–our impact is far reaching–community focused–and always sustainable. But we aren’t just about granting money toward issues of poverty, we also want to inspire people to care about justice, and to take action through simple generosity. Because together, we truly believe we can alleviate extreme global poverty in our lifetime.
INVESTED IN PARTNERSHIPS
"When my children are sick, she can help," says Juliet. We worked with our partners to train mothers in Uganda to become Community Health Providers (CHPs), so that they could diagnose and treat the majority of preventable illnesses that mothers and children experience in their neighborhoods. Juliet is one of the moms who now has access to life-saving health care for herself and her two daughters thanks to her neighborhood.
Clean hands make happy healthy kids! Together with our partners we enabled a project in Guatemala to promote improved hygiene practices for 750 children and their families. The project taught children proper sanitation practices in their schools, including hand washing. Thanks to this program, children are now asking for soap at home because they have learned about germs, and how using soap can prevent them from getting sick.
