Our mission is to help improve lives and contribute to overcoming community decline in underserved areas locally, nationally and globally. We do this by empowering students and unemployed youth with opportunities for skills training and to generate income for themselves in the communities they grew up in. The end goal of our mission is to create wealth in those communities and for those individuals to gain disposable income to be able to purchase products and services in the neighborhood and to pay taxes to local government. By these actions, we are able to add to empowering disadvantaged individuals to contribute to the economic growth of their communities.
Specifically, we plan on fulfilling our mission by:
- Equipping underprivileged schools with new teaching tools and disadvantaged universities with research capabilities.
- Modernizing economically distressed and underserved communities with workforce training to seek new job opportunities.
- Building micro infrastructure to support income generation and wealth creation. Our micro infrastructure support includes micro homes and micro industrial estates supported by auxiliary services such as alternative clean water supply, low cost high speed broadband internet, micro power, micro health, micro loan facilities, product quality testing and market place for micro businesses.
