Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Demonstrably reduce mortality and morbidity in our adult population of primarily HIV+ individuals, but also others suffering from major chronic illnesses like tuberculosis and mental illness.
2. Strengthen our families' ability to meet basic household economic needs, including housing, food, education and medical care.
3. Reduce generational poverty by ensuring all children, particularly girls, complete at a minimum a high-school education and if possible earn a university or trade school degree.

1. Monitor the health of all program participants and ensure adequate medical care.
2. Enroll all participants in a Community-based Health Insurance program.
3, Provide supplementary care, if needed.
4. Provide Conditional Basic Income Grants and monitor family economic performance.
5. Assist every participant to open a savings account and encourage monthly saving.
6. Provide basic business skill training and provide grants for new business startups or expansions.
7. Ensure that all school-age children are enrolled and attending school and monitor their progress.
8. Provide psychosocial support and counseling when needed.
9. Ensure adequate housing by providing rent support when needed and assistance with purchasing affordable housing.
