In today’s volunteer in Africa blog – why we focus on poor families in poor communities

The major reason we focus on poor families is to increase their abilities to provide support and guidance to children living under their care, ie their own children and children of relatives who are deceased; ensuring that the effort to better the future of these children are not only coming from us but equally or largely from them also. Thus we are concerned about their health and run the healthcare programs, and for those near health facilities, we pay for their health insurance which also covers the children. We provide some with durable mechanized farm tools to help them reduce manual input and increase yield. We provide children of some of them with funding for higher education. We are supporting their schools by building tables and chairs for the children. We support community based organizations that provide soft loans for such families to trade or buy seeds for farming.
