Our On Going Community Work
Access to Clean Water
Gravity water systems provide rural communities with a free and natural water supply. No longer needing to harvest water, families can sustainably use the connection for their daily needs and farming.
Farming for Food Security
Rural families are empowered with the skills, tools and knowledge to sustainably farm for their own fresh food at home – In the long-term, reducing hunger while protecting the environment.
Rural Bridge Safety
Children and their families can safely travel within their villages without worrying about being hurt. Repaired suspension bridges help to keep children safe and in school, in hopes of a brighter sustainable future.
Sustainable Living Empowerment
Rural farmers and women are empowered to reach their full potential in Farming and Business. With the means to become independent entrepreneurs, villagers achieve sustainable livelihoods for their families.
