How do you improve access to healthcare for the rural poor? Simple. We teach.
Since 2014 we have been working in Central and Eastern Africa’s poorest rural communities, teaching women, girls and the disabled about menstruation, water & sanitation, and feminine health.
For generations, rural women, girls and the disabled have been excluded from healthcare programs and educational development. It’s no surprise that rural communities have the highest number of out of school girls, early pregnancies and deaths of infants and children.
Our mission is to close the gaps that prevent vulnerable and oppressed from accessing healthcare information. We want to see that millions of children live beyond 5 years of life; that children are spared of preventable disabling hearing or vision loss, or that a mother learns that proper healthcare means the difference of her infant living or dying beyond 28 days of life. Our goal is to empower the rural poor with healthcare knowledge so that communities will thrive and children will live.
We offer sustainable solutions by bringing the classroom to the village, teaching self-sufficiency and building self-esteem while transforming the impoverished, illiterate and neglected to become significant contributors to society.
“Thousands upon thousands of lives are being changed everyday when we give the gift of knowledge. Every human being deserves to have an education, and we are making sure that it happens.“
