Our programs develop from the underlying premise that the citizens of Ouelessebougou will themselves identify the most critical needs in their village. They determine locally viable and sustainable solutions, and then, when possible provide the human and physical resources to satisfy those needs in an ecologically responsible manner.
Together We Lift Each Other
Building Human Capacity
We take a human-centric approach in all our partnerships. When programs are locally-vetted and supported, there is a higher likelihood of success and lasting community impact.
We partner with villagers to help them reach their goals in health and education. We teach principles to solve problems vs. fixing issues with temporary solutions. By providing sustainable resources and on-the-ground training, villagers are empowered to break the cycle of poverty for themselves.
In all our projects and partnerships, we strive to follow the three core principles of development:
Participants are significant contributors in all programs and projects
Build capacity in individuals and communities
Programs produce qualitative and quantitative results
In the impoverished villages of Ouelessebougou, families are faced with a growing health crisis. We partner with villagers to support disease prevention, sanitation, nutrition and more.
