WHAT IS OUR METHOD?

We develop functional communities which can manage their own development through a Community Health Club.

 

 

WHO ARE OUR MAIN BENEFICIARIES?

Women are our main focus but we encourage both men and women to join Community Health Clubs. We count the whole family as direct beneficiaries as they all benefit from improved health due to increased hygiene in the home.

 

HOW ARE WE FUNDED?

Almost all of our funds have come from either direct grants from major Agencies or as an implementing partner with other International Organisations. However, we are now fundraising directly from the public.
