and he who has hope, has everything."

Teach. Collaborate. Sustain.

Our Model and Impact 

We train.png

We Teach

We embrace the capacity building impact of training and education, and combine hands-on training with theory to teach both the "how" and the "why" of each new technique.

The Pay-it-Forward Effect: Each practitioner we train shares this knowledge with up to 70 others.

We support.png

We Collaborate

We support each community where we work through our network of partners, and we identify appropriate equipment, policies and curriculum to develop local capacity and best practices.

Strong Partnerships:  We work together to determine the best solutions in each community.

We empower.png

We Sustain

By ensuring that our partners have both the knowledge and the resources, we support them to make decisions and develop their capacity to create sustainable healthy communities.

Long-term Solutions:  In everything we do, our goal is to foster self-reliance and sustainability.
