We help people improve their incomes and food security so they have enough to eat. They grow
drought-resistant crops and irrigate their fields. Villages set up community gardens to multiply and share seeds.
They start livestock clubs to rear guinea fowl, ducks, chickens and goats.
We help communities set up Savings and Loans Groups, which enable people to
start or expand small businesses.
Villages set up childcare centres for under 5’s, teaching and feeding the children. Churches pay school fees for orphaned children. They provide food for elderly and disabled people and repair their homes. Youth drama clubs raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, encouraging people to go for testing and treatment.
Communities plant trees to increase soil fertility, reduce erosion and prevent flooding. They build
dykes and dig storm drains to protect their crops and houses from floods. They make fuel-efficient stoves from sand,
manure and cement to save wood.
Villagers build pit-latrines and learn to prevent the spread of disease. They dig wells and lobby government for boreholes, so they have clean water.
