CREATE PROSPERITY FOR EVERYONE.

By 2035, we are dedicated to 

  • Ensuring no person is without clean water, food, and shelter.

We are aligned with the United Nations' goal to end poverty by 2030, our mission is to ensure that no individual is left without basic necessities.

 

We provide stability and support in crisis situations, offering essential resources such as food, water, hygiene, shelter, healthcare, and education. Our comprehensive approach involves three key steps:

1) investing in infrastructure and resources, including addressing climate challenges; 2) prioritizing education and mental health resources to empower individuals and break the cycle of poverty; and 3) promoting economic empowerment and job creation through entrepreneurship and financial services.

Additionally, our Hope Box initiative delivers crucial items like hygiene products, clothing, and food to those in urgent need. Through our collective efforts, we strive to create equality, improve lives, and make a lasting impact on global poverty and homelessness.

Our Three-Step Solution

Building Homes

1. Infrastructure and Resources

Building homes and providing essential resources is a crucial solution for poverty alleviation. Building safe structures, and ensuring access to safe water, food, healthcare, and hygiene facilities are key components of this approach. Adequate housing provides stability and improves overall well-being, while access to clean water and sanitation facilities reduces health risks. Additionally, initiatives that focus on increasing agricultural productivity, promoting sustainable farming practices, and enhancing food security address the issue of malnutrition and create economic opportunities for communities.  By ensuring basic needs are met, such programs help alleviate the immediate impact of poverty and provide a foundation for individuals to improve their circumstances.

2. Education and Mental Health Development

Investing in education and skill development programs, alongside mental health support, is crucial for addressing poverty. By providing individuals living in poverty with access to quality education, vocational training, and entrepreneurship programs, they can acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to improve their employment prospects. Integrating mental health support into these initiatives is essential as it addresses the mental health challenges that individuals face. By offering counseling services, mindfulness training, and resilience-building programs, individuals can develop coping mechanisms, overcome mental health barriers, and focus on their education and skill development. Normalizing discussions around mental health within communities helps to destigmatize mental health issues, creating an environment that supports the overall well-being and success of individuals living in poverty.

Work Environment

3. Economic Empowerment and Job Creation

We foster an equitable environment that encourages economic growth and job creation is crucial for reducing poverty. This can be achieved through promoting entrepreneurship, supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and attracting investment in sectors that have the potential to generate employment opportunities. Additionally, providing access to financial services, such as microfinance and small business loans, can enable individuals to start their own businesses and generate sustainable incomes.

Did you know

  • There are 1.6 Billion people live in inadequate housing situations

  • 1 person dies from hunger every 4 seconds.

  • World leaders convened at the United Nations in 2015 and outlined the Global Goals, with the primary objective of ending poverty in all its forms.

  • With a decade remaining to meet this crucial deadline, it is important to comprehend the distinction between poverty and extreme poverty. In 2015,  the international poverty line changed to $1.90 per day, making it challenging for individuals to access fundamental necessities like food, water, and shelter.

  • Factors such as gender inequality, discrimination, conflicts, and crises contribute to the persistence of extreme poverty by limiting access to essential infrastructure, services, and information.

  • Extreme poverty disproportionately affects rural populations, children, women, the elderly, individuals with disabilities, indigenous communities, refugees, and internally displaced persons.

  • Although poverty rates have declined in many regions, sub-Saharan Africa has the largest number of people in extreme poverty.

  • Ending extreme poverty requires addressing complex issues, including conflicts, economic hardships, food insecurity, and climate change. Long-term investments and policy shifts are necessary to sustain personal growth and prevent individuals from falling back into poverty.

  • Collaborative efforts involving citizens, governments, corporations, and philanthropists are crucial to ensuring that all individuals have the necessary resources to live without relying on aid.

  • While extreme poverty has experienced a substantial decline in the past two decades, there are still over 700 million people currently living in extreme poverty.

  • Multidimensional Poverty: Around 1.3 billion people, or 22% of the global population, experience multidimensional poverty, which takes into account various factors like education, healthcare, and living standards (UNDP).

  • Regional Disparities: Poverty rates vary across regions, with sub-Saharan Africa having the highest poverty rate, followed by Southern Asia and Eastern Asia.

  • Children in Poverty: Around 356 million children worldwide were living in extreme poverty as of 2020 (UNICEF).

  • Gender Inequality: Poverty disproportionately affects women and girls due to gender disparities in education, employment, and resources. Supporting initiatives that empower girls and women, and promote education, health, nutrition, water, and sanitation play a pivotal role in the journey to end extreme poverty.

  • Rural vs. Urban Poverty: Poverty rates are generally higher in rural areas due to limited access to services, job opportunities, and agricultural challenges.

  • Significant progress has been made in reducing people in extreme poverty, decreasing from nearly 36% in 1990 to 9.2% in 2021.

  • Mental disorders affect at least 1 in 7 children from the age of 10 to 19 globally, emphasizing the importance of mental health support throughout childhood.

  • Opening a dialogue around mental health helps destigmatize the issue, and spreading the message "It's okay not to be okay" is beneficial for children and adolescents.

  • Poor-quality diets pose significant obstacles to child survival and healthy development, particularly during the first two years of life when malnutrition can have irreversible effects on a child's body and brain.

  •  Poverty, drought, and climate change have exacerbated malnutrition crises worldwide.

  • Wasting (low weight for height) increases the risk of death if left untreated while stunting (low height for age) hinders children from reaching their full potential.

  • Approximately 2 billion people do not have safe water while 1.7 billion do not have basic sanitation, underscoring the urgent need for improved water and sanitation infrastructure.

By providing shelter, food, water, basic necessities, access to education, economic empowerment, jobs, and mental health resources we can end poverty.
