Our Impact

 

Alleviating poverty is at the heart of what we do. We build opportunities by creating jobs for people living in extreme poverty, so they can be the heroes providing their own solutions in their communities. This means training well mechanics to keep wells working, providing farmers with better irrigation systems, teaching women to be health care workers, and mentoring stove masons.

Together, this is what those opportunities look like now and what collectively, we've created.

Environment

Cooking over open fires is one of the world's biggest - but least known - killers. Four million people die each year from breathing in toxic cooking smoke.

 

Opportunity

Stoves are made locally and sold by men and women in Kenya. Both masons and vendors earn commission for every sale. Each stove saves a family 20% of their daily expenses, because they use 50% less charcoal per day.

One stove saves six trees from being turned into charcoal each year and reduces carbon emissions by 1.5 tons.

Health

Every minute, six children die in the developing world because they do not have access to basic medicines - treatments that cost less than a cup of coffee.

 

Opportunity

Train local leaders to become health care promoters, so they can earn a living selling over 60 products at affordable prices. Each person cares for approximately 800 people in their community, giving special attention to pregnant mothers and young children.

Health care promoters have reduced child mortality by 25% in their communities.

Hunger

80% of the poor in Sub-Saharan Africa work as rural farmers. Each night, 75% of their children go hungry because they struggle to grow enough to feed their families.

 

Opportunity

12-15 million farmers in Africa would benefit from irrigation. One irrigation pump can lift a farmer and his family out of poverty and into the middle class in as little as one harvest.

On average, each farmer grows enough to sell produce to 50 community members, and earns enough to send one child to school for the first time.

Water

Over one-third of all wells drilled in the last twenty years are now broken - 50,000 are currently broken in Africa alone.

 

Opportunity

Training local well mechanics to fix and maintain wells is the most sustainable way to ensure wells are always working so people have access to clean water. Mechanics earn an income from fixing and maintaining wells.

SERVING:

788,114 people with clean water
