Our Adopt A Village programme gives individuals and organisations the opportunity to sponsor an African village, and commit to lifting that community out of poverty. Adopt A Village encompasses all of our existing projects and delivers them all in the adopted village. The sponsor provides the funding that will give the village all the resources that they need to develop, such as:
Education through our Ripples Box Programme
Medical Care through to our Medical MOT Programme
Empower women through out Women's Enterprise Projects
Today, we are established in 7 different village in Nigeria and one village in Ghana and our teams are helping more than an hundred of people. We work closely with three different sponsors to establish and keep a relationship based on trust and involvement from both the organisation and the sponsor. With your support and the help of our dedicated teams on the ground, we can increase this number of villages and establish our different programmes where you wish us to operate.
The benefits that villagers can get from the Adopt A Village programme are vast. By providing programmes for women and children, we are in fact providing benefits that whole cillages can feel the advantage of, creating a more stable community for children to grow up in, and giving them a higher chance of achieving a financially secure future.
This Programme is a fantastic programme that can be implemented into your company's corporate social responsibility plans, whilst changing the lives of a whole community for the better.
Adopting a village means that you can make change happen, improve the lives of children, improve the lives of children, and help to break the circle of extreme poverty.
Our projects improve the facilities of villages and provide villagers with new places to learn and work, such as libraries, production centres and hospitals, all of which contribute towards the development of communities and improves their connectivity to the rest of the world.
We deliver projects that improve the health and well-being of villagers, offering free medical care, consultations and safe drinking water to communities that would not otherwise have access to them.
Through our women’s enterprise programme we are ensuring that small villages become connected to each other through a chain of commerce, resulting in women sustaining a regular income to support their families through the demand of their businesses.
