Mission

Mission statement: Educate, equip and inspire a new generation to break free from the cycle of poverty throughout the world.
At By The Way, we are aware the greatest hindrance to humanity is ignorance. People born into a civil society are raised with intrinsic knowledge of basic concepts. For example, animals need water and food to survive; plants need water and food to survive, etc. However, in developing nations where education is minimal, even the most basic of concepts are beyond their ability to reason. They need to be taught to water and feed the plants and animals if they expect them to grow. In one experiment we conducted with an agriculture and chicken project, the chickens were placed in a secure pen and the plants were planted nearby. As they were instructed daily to take water and provided food to the chickens daily and to water the plants every morning, the animals and plants thrived. Two weeks later everything (including the chickens) had died. When questioned, the responsible parties explained it was hot. When questioned about water, they simply shrugged and said, it did not occur to them they needed it everyday. It became a hard lesson to understand and created an awareness that they need to be taught to reason. They need to be taught how to plan. When they are not offered even a primary education, they need to be taught how to problem solve in an everyday process. This process is true in every aspect that keeps them enslaved to a poverty cycle that they do not have the knowledge or ingenuity to break free from. If they are raised in indigenous areas, speaking a tribal language, they are not able to communicate with anyone else. Some theorize, they are fine, leave them where they are. Unfortunately, the dictators and war lords do not subscribe to this utopian way of thinking and then have a full army and/or slave pool at their disposal. When you educate people, you arm them with abilities, you strengthen them with knowledge. They can conquer, if you will just let them learn.

Center of Hope - Mozambique

Building Center of Hope in Chibuto, Gaza Province, Mozambique.

In the poorest province of one of the most poverty stricken countries, the center will be a beacon of HOPE to the community. As it grows, it will house orphans and widows, teach life skills, trades, provide schooling, teach farming and animal husbandry and reestablish the family and community structure. It will become a self-sustaining community that has developed into a city with its own economy and self developed commerce.

Once complete, the center will house 12 trade school programs (that currently do not exist in the surrounding province and most do not exist nationwide). A primary and secondary school, a full service clinic, sports complex, animal and agricultural husbandry programs, 12 family style orphan houses meant to reintegrate a family environment (vs. the large 500 child orphanages).

The center is envisioned to teach a community how to thrive. Open their eyes to a world that oppresses them in their ignorance. When they live in grass houses that wash away every year and eat roots and leaves because the legacy of a war torn country is all to real in this province, they need to be taught. A man needs to be taught how to build with blocks and mortar. A woman needs to be taught how to plant in rows, water, weed and harvest a crop. Children need to be taught how to read, how to add and how communicate. These skills are learned at early ages in civil societies. Unfortunately, this is a place where society refuses to enter, except to harvest manual labor for underground mines in foreign countries or to find girls for sale in the human market.
