What we do
We plan and support amazing programs that improve lives and build better futures across sub-Saharan Africa to include Health, Agriculture, Nutrition, Empowering Women and Youth, plus Humitarian Assistance.
We Consult. We Reach.
Activities that target reducing infant/child mortality and improving women’s health. The core component of a Community-based malaria program is training families on critical malaria practices. Promoting the use of long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs), intermittent preventive treatment of malaria in pregnancy (IPTp). Improving the health of children under five and pregnant women by promoting malaria preventive services. Focus on training volunteers for community mobilization activities to raise awareness of key health and family practices, including malaria prevention.
Programs focusing on Emergency Response and Support to Improve the Resilience of Vulnerable Populations in High-Risk Areas. Contribute to the socio-economic stability of the Sahel region by creating and stabilizing jobs to support women and youth in Agricultural sectors (seeds, fertilizer, and livestock). Fight food insecurity by distributing food to vulnerable households.
Programs focusing on fighting food insecurity by supporting the populations to organize at different levels (village, inter-village, canton) and to participate in the development, validation, dissemination actively, and monitoring of the implementation of community development plans that embrace sustainable and shared management of natural resources, gender equity, food security and nutrition, and WASH
Activities that provide structured curricula (on SDGs, Tolerance & Inclusion, Gender Equity, health, and malaria prevention) to boost youth life skills and public health capacity in partnership with National Basketball Association (NBA). Power Forward is in its 6th year directly benefitting 300 youth (150 boys and 150 girls) annually at ten public and private secondary schools, plus 600 Peer Influencers – leaders and public health student educators (300 boys and 300 girls) at 20 adopted schools in one state/city. It works with youth aged 14 to 17, leveraging the draw of the sport of basketball to engage them.
Programs focusing on fighting malnutrition to improve child nutrition (0-5 yrs) for pregnant and lactating women. Contribute to reducing maternal/infant mortality among vulnerable and marginalized women, specifically adolescent girls and their children. Construction of maternal waiting homes will be used to improve access to critical maternal health services for pregnant women in rural areas.
Programs focusing on transitory food shortages at the household level during the lean season in regions with high levels of food insecurity and stunting rates. These food baskets include cereal (maize meal/maize grain), pulses (pigeon peas/split yellow peas/cow peas), and vegetable oil. This food basket provides the beneficiaries with micronutrients, fat, carbohydrates, and protein that are adequate to cater to the basic nutritional needs of the selected households based on WHO and FAO guidelines and standards.
