WHAT WE DO
We pursue five (5) program areas that improve lives and/or to combat community deterioration. Our USA programs focus on all the five areas. On the other hand, our overseas programs focus on education, health, community improvement and disaster relief. The topics for our 5 programs are:
Our education program comprises of two sub-programs, the primary & secondary education and the college & university program. Our primary and secondary education program focuses on suppling STEM books, software, and scientific equipment to needy students in underprivileged schools. On the other hand, our colleges & universities education program help undergraduate and graduate students in disadvantaged colleges and universities to develop scientific research capabilities.
Our health program focuses on two sub-programs, namely improve access to better health care and management of infectious diseases. Our access to better healthcare focus on support for testing and distribution of low cost point-of-care medical devices, low cost drugs, and low cost clean water technologies for people and homes in distressed communities such as low income homes, declared disaster zones, refugee camps and remote villages. On the other hand, for our management of infectious diseases sub-program, we promote early detection and contact tracing of infectious diseases in the poorest communities in the USA, and in developing countries by distribution of low cost self-diagnostic testing medical devices, deploying mobile health clinics, and supporting nurses and doctors with telemedicine.
Our workforce development program concentrates on job qualification training. We promote development of employable skills training for unemployed youth and graduates, and re-training of laid-off workers and veterans to enable them to secure better job paying opportunities.
Community improvement is our flagship program, and affords us the opportunity to empower economically disadvantaged communities in the USA and abroad with economic empowerment infrastructure support. Being our flagship program, the community improvement program is composed of eight (8) sub-programs, and they are temporary shelters for homeless, micro training centers for practical skills training, micro business incubators for entrepreneurial training and formalization of informal sector, micro industrial estates for leasing to micro/small enterprises, product quality certification for micro/small enterprises, micro financing of small firms, high speed broadband internet and micro power (renewable energy) supply for underserved communities.
Our disaster relief program focuses on two sub-programs, namely, disaster declared zones and refugee support sub-programs. We partner with other non-profit organizations or directly provide disaster relief items to people and home in disaster declared zones in the USA. On the other hand, for refugee support sub-program, we partner with international non-profit organizations to deliver disaster relief items to refugee camps internationally.
For both sub-programs we supply, powered and environmentally friendly temporary shelters, low cost renewable energy technologies, low cost point-of-care medical devices, low cost technology for instant cooking of foods, low cost clean water technologies, low cost home heating devices, and low cost home cooling devices.
HOW WE WORK
The Communities we serve
The target beneficiaries for our education programs are disadvantaged students and underserved schools, colleges and universities in the USA. Our health and community improvement programs are targeted at poor, distressed, underserved, underprivileged, and economically disadvantaged communities both in the USA and abroad. Our education and workforce improvement programs focus on unemployed youth who are high school, community college and university graduates. Additionally, our workforce improvement program focus on unemployed veterans and laid-off workers from closed or liquidated plants/factories. Furthermore, our disaster relief programs concentrate on disaster declared zones in the USA and refugee camps overseas.
We provide services by recruiting key professional staffs that manage day-to-day activities of the organization. In addition, we depend on interns and volunteers who are usually professors, graduate students and grant writers to complement our staffing needs. Our volunteers and interns also participate in fund raising efforts. We often recruit people who are experts and have cultural intelligence from the target beneficiary area.
WHERE we WORK
Our programs are funded with grants and donations from donors and sponsors in the United States of America to finance our projects in the USA, Africa, and the Caribbean countries. We partner with local volunteers and other non-profit organizations who have cultural knowledge and deep understanding of the local problems our programs intend to address. Our head office is in Clayton County, Georgia. Our current operations cover all counties in Georgia and the country Ghana.
