what we are about

Together we can create a world without extreme poverty, one happy village at a time.

WHAT WE DO

It’s much easier to create change when you focus your attention, so we operate at village level.  We really get to know the communities, and they really get to know us.

OUR MISSION

To achieve a world without extreme poverty by using existing community structures to assist the poorest in the community in an honest and accountable manner.

OUR PLEDGE

Sustainability is paramount, in our methods and resources, but also in assisting the Lieta community without creating a situation of dependency on foreign aid.

WE LOVE PERMACULTURE

Permaculture is the development of sustainable and self- sufficient agricultural ecosystems. We focus on empowering locals through permaculture practices.

On the horizon…

The proposed library project will benefit the entire community. However, the first target population are the 10 schools we partner with in Lieta sublocation and those from the neighbouring communities, their teachers, the village committees working in Health, Education, water and sanitation, Agriculture and Environment.
