If it were easy, it wouldn’t be a problem worth solving. If it were simple, the system wouldn’t be difficult to fix. And if it were unimportant, it certainly wouldn’t be a sacrifice worth making. So, what are we really doing? Simply put, we are trying.
Since the start of 2012, you have invested over $25,000 in five different communities in Nigeria with the sole purpose of improving the lives of the people in the communities. Our goal is to tip the scales of justice in their favor by investing in the following areas listed below. We believe that investing in these areas will provide access to immediate standard of living improvements (water and microloans) and long term improvements (education).
Microloans – We want to give people the opportunity to access credit so they can improve their lives by starting or expanding small businesses.
Education – We want to give children the opportunity to receive an education. In every community where there is an existing education infrastructure (teachers, school building, willing parents and children), we will invest in sustaining the education investments.
Water – We want to provide better access to safer water so that people in the communities do not have to spend hours fetching unsafe water.
Thank you for your support so far. Please continue to help us as we invest in these communities.
