We are a California-based development organization that has teamed with local development organizations in East Africa and South East Asia.
Together, we collaborate with families and schools to implement programs that ultimately help children to grow up healthy, educated, and able to earn an income.
We provide management and technical support to locally-run development organizations for programs in six focus areas: Access Water, Nourish Soil, Strengthen Health, Earn Income, Improve Home, and Enhance Education.
Projects within each of these areas include: water distribution systems, organic compost production, organic gardening, small business lending, home improvement, and improving school infrastructure.
We help families achieve sustainable food and income self-reliance. Sustainable self-reliance means that the families can sustain life-improvements without the need for ongoing charity.
We do this because when children are supported by self-reliant families and communities, they have the opportunity to grow up healthy, educated, and able to earn an income so they can support a family of their own and experience the joy of achievement and self-actualization.
