What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Orphan Care

The impact of poverty, maternal
mortality and HIV/AIDS presents a complex set of causes with one major outcome—children
are orphaned and thrust into an environment with little opportunity or hope.
Often left to find their own way, OVC are at great risk for many forms of
exploitation and abuse—including labor and sex trafficking.
We have been working to care for
and empower orphans since 2004, and will continue to leverage that experience
to create greater opportunities for OVC across the globe. Through our work at
Mtendere Village, near Lilongwe, Malawi(http://100xdevelopment.com/project_zone.php?id=2)
as well through partnerships on five continents(http://100xdevelopment.com/project_zones.php) , we
provide shelter, caring adult support, and education while working to empower
each child to build a better tomorrow.  

By providing a loving environment and high quality
education, children are given the opportunity to thrive and are no
longer identified by their status as an orphan.

Population(s) Served

Human trafficking is the second
largest global organized crime today—generating $31.6 billion annually. Each
year more than 1.5 million children are trafficked for forced labor and
commercial sexual exploitation, and it is estimated that 99% are never rescued.
The innocence of childhood is exchanged for the profit of others. This
is a crime that knows no boundaries—whether geographic, ethnic, or
socio-economic—but the most vulnerable are those who have no one to speak for
them.

Protection and Empowerment.
To date, we have partnered with nonprofits across the globe to build 31 houses
for orphans and vulnerable children, and in 2011, more than 500 children were
reached. Each of our programs provides a safe and loving home environment where
children are able to complete their education and learn life skills that will
provide the foundation for a hopeful and productive future. Our work protects
the most vulnerable children by providing access to caring adults, educational
support, health care and training for future livelihoods.

We recognize that entrapment in
human trafficking is often the result of poverty and lack of resources, so we
have also established a consortium of university partners who are working with
us to develop education and workforce development programs, as well as
opportunities for continued education at the university level.

Education and Mobilization.
In a speech before the House of Commons in 1791, William Wilberforce stated, “You
may choose to look the other way but you can never again say you did not know.”
We are committed to exposing the evil of human trafficking, and providing
resources for those who choose not to look away. The criminal network
working to ensure the continuation of this exploitation is strong, and complete
abolition will require engagement at all levels—from students to heads of
State.

Population(s) Served

Children—specifically orphans and
vulnerable children (OVC)—are at the heart of everything that we do. Since
2004, we have been working to care for and empower children, and will continue
to leverage that experience to create greater opportunity for every child in
our programs.

OVC face a number of barriers
that prevent them from achieving an education. Efforts to complete primary
education are often derailed because of stigma and the pressure to work. The
few who do complete primary school are often prevented from continuing on to
secondary school (high school) because of a lack of financial resources and
school supplies.

By providing high quality
education, our children are given the opportunity to thrive and are no longer
limited by their status as an orphan.

The initiative includes

            Funds
for secondary school paid directly to the school as well as clothing, school
supplies and food given directly to the child and their family or host home;

            Multiple
job training and micro-enterprise opportunities that will increase employment
opportunities; and

            Service
learning programs for education students that will place university students in
Malawi to work directly with students and to provide in-service opportunities
for teachers in Malawi.

Population(s) Served

Estimates suggest that more than
350,000 women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year—approximately 40
women per hour. Ninety-nine percent of these deaths occur in developing
countries, and nearly all of them are preventable.

Maternal death can be
dramatically reduced with education and medical support, but in rural areas,
access is severely limited. Visits to the clinic require traveling long
distances—something that those who are poor simply cannot afford or do not
prioritize. As a result, many mothers die from hemorrhaging or other treatable
complications. We can help prevent these deaths.

LIVE TO LOVE INITIATIVE

The Live to
Love initiative delivers education and nutrition for the nation’s poorest
villages so that fewer mothers will die and leave their children as orphans in
a nation already overrun with need. The initiative will launch in Malawi(http://100xdevelopment.com/project_zone.php?id=2) —with
the intention of developing similar programs throughout the continent once the
program is established.

Live to
Love will provide vital resources to pregnant mothers, and strengthen the
capacity of midwives and community healthcare workers to respond to the needs
of mothers in areas where obstetric care is systematically lacking.

Education. Through our education program, pregnant women will be
taught the importance of nutrition and hygiene, how to avoid unsafe practices,
and how to mitigate, recognize and respond to common pregnancy complications.

Nutrition. We are working with with the award winning
international health expert, Dr. Mark Manary & Project Peanut Butter to
develop a food product specifically formulated to meet the nutritional needs of
pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. Research indicates that proper nutrition is
vital to reducing complications during pregnancy and delivery. It also ensures
that infants receive adequate nutrition in utero and after birth—critical to
protect against stunting.

HIV/AIDS
Screening. In an effort to prevent mother
to child transmission of HIV/AIDS, women will also be granted the opportunity
to receive free HIV screening via Winnie’s
Footprint(http://100xdevelopment.com/winnies_footprint.php) . If positive, they will be offered ART through the
free clinic at Blessings Hospital.

Midwifery
Training. A midwifery training and
simulation program will educate midwives and community healthcare workers in
prenatal care and emergency obstetric care. Certified medical professionals, as
well as a nurse volunteer corps composed of students from Kamuzu College,
Auburn University and other universities will help develop and conduct the
training.

NURSING EDUCATION

Across the
globe, nurses are often the first point of contact when visiting a healthcare
facility, and they are charged with the task of ensuring that each patient
receives access to appropriate care as prescribed by their physician. To be an
effective nurse, one must have the ability to care for someone physically,
emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and medicinally: in other words, to care
for the mind, body and soul.

In
developing countries, nurses are not only the first point of contact—they are
often the only healthcare worker available. Arguably, they must be
better equipped and more highly trained than those working where doctors are
available to answer complex questions.

Through
partnership with the Kamuzu College
of Nursing(http://www.kcn.unima.mw/) (Malawi) and Auburn University’s School of Nursing(http://www.auburn.edu/academic/nursing/)
(US), we are working to train and equip nursing students with the resources
they need to care for the well-being of every patient.

Population(s) Served

Fifty-five percent of the
world’s population lives on less than $2 per day, and one billion of
them suffer from chronic hunger. A large majority of this group live in areas
where their food source is directly linked to agriculture and aquaculture
production. In rural areas, this number is as high as 75%. As a result, a
parent’s ability to feed their family hinges not on their own determination,
but on favorable weather patterns and the containment of pests and disease.

The development sector
often operates under a strategy of reaction instead of prevention, which
inevitably means that lives will be shattered before help is in place. At 100X,
we want to intervene with sustainable solutions before a crisis peaks.

Malnutrition is a major
contributor to maternal health problems and leads to reduced physical and
mental development during childhood, difficulty resisting disease, and
diminished capacity to learn and do physical work.

As part of our original orphan
care program in Malawi(http://100xdevelopment.com/project_zone.php?id=2) ,
we began supporting agriculture and child nutrition programs to support
children and families in poverty. To extend these efforts, we are working with
the award winning international health expert, Dr. Mark Manary(http://peds.wustl.edu/faculty/manary_mark_j/FacultyBio/tabid/2829/Default.aspx)
& Project Peanut
Butter(http://www.projectpeanutbutter.org/PPB/Project_Peanut_Butter.html) to develop a food product specifically formulated to meet
the nutritional needs of pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. Research indicates
that proper nutrition is vital to reducing complications during pregnancy and
delivery. It also ensures that infants receive adequate nutrition in utero and
after birth—critical to protect against stunting.
