Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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

Oases of Life

To reverse climate-induced vulnerability in the Azawak, we build vibrant communities promoting women’s rights. We first establish a sustainable water source which creates the opportunity for women to flourish in development programs, including:
-WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene)
-Health (Care/Education)
-Education (Child/Adult)
-Food Security and Nutrition
-Economic Security

Furthermore, improving women’s rights and community access to poverty reduction initiatives limits the need for climate-migration and reduces islamic-radicalization. Women-empowerment opportunities in our “Oases of Life” villages offer climate-resilience meanwhile positioning women as vanguards of change for climate-reduction both locally and globally.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goal 1: To serve as a leading advocate for Africa’s most vulnerable indigenous populations. To promote local traditions and knowledge, meanwhile bringing new knowledge and resources that strengthen the population’s cultural heritage, capacity, and resiliency.

Goal 2: Through our “Oases of Life” Program, to help marginalized indigenous populations access resources necessary for their survival, wellbeing, and prosperous growth.

Goal 3: Through our “Wells of Love” Program, to empower students, from pre-school to university levels, as our active partners in order to help instill a global consciousness and a humanitarian spirit in today’s youth, and tomorrow’s leaders.

Goal 4: To ascertain the impact and sustainability of our work locally, nationally, and globally. Sustainability here is defined both as “long-term positive impact” and “ecologically respectful”.
