The Madagascar Model Healthy Village is grounded in local culture and relationships, empowering neighbors to learn and teach good hygiene, and equipping all households with water filters and composting latrines. Families make significant in-kind contributions of work, sand, and bamboo or wood for outhouses. Our previous. Global Grant-winning Model Healthy Village achieved a 77% reduction in diarrhea in two years. The newest community, Analamalotra, has 4,880 residents who lack safe drinking water or anitation. This project will transform that reality.
The Ghana School Project is building the essential resources for the children of Kumasi to learn and thrive academically, an essential bridge to a fulfilling future. The infrastructure of the school, which serves 500 children from age 5 to 12, is in disrepair. Fewer than 10% of the children have textbooks or desks. With your help, all children will receive the learning supplies they urgently need. You’ll also provide teachers and older students instruction in CPR, AED, and first aid.
