Communication

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Poverty tends to be cyclical. With that understanding we look for ways to break that cycle through scholastic and health education. Lack of clean drinking water and access to proper scholastic and hands on education stifles an individual's growth potential and in turn stifles the community's ability to prosper.

Good Homes

THE STORY:
The village of Metekata and surrounding areas had been devestated by the flooding in 2015 that has swept across Malawi, Africa. Each home costs $400 to build. One home directly impacts up to 12 people.

Charting impact

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

As a community development organization our goal is to see individuals reach their created potential through opportunity and education. We aim to provide clean drinking water to every home in the areas we work in as well as to see every child receive an education and every adult receive the opportunity to live out their goals through further education by means of university or vocational training.

In Honduras our staff are constantly gathering information on those children who are not in school and going to their homes to discuss with their parents/guardians a strategy to send their children to school.
The staff also identifies every home that does not have clean filtered drinking water and after the proper education on the water filtration system the family is given one.
We are in the process of acquiring a property in Honduras to do vocational training.

In Malawi our staff are identifying those who need a home and engaging with them to build. The potential home owner has to be willing to help build or if they are not able to then they are required to get a family member in their place.
As post high school students with a desire to further their education are identified we seek means to send them on to university or vocational training school.

Our national staff are very respected in their communities. That being said they have an ear to the ground, if you will. They also have a high capacity to hire quality laborers as well as educators. Because they live in the communities that we as an organization work in, accessibility is never an issue.
Materials for our projects are always purchased locally so as to benefit the local economy.
As far as funding goes, we as an organization do our best to keep our administration to a minimum so as to make the greatest impact in the areas where we work.

Over the past 8+ years we have provided education to hundreds of children from ages 5-24 in some of the poorest areas of Honduras and Malawi through our Sponsor a Desk Program. In Honduras we have provided clean water, bathrooms and pilas (water holding tanks & washing stations) to many families through our Source of Life Program. In Malawi we have provided homes for hundreds of individuals through our Rebuild Malawi efforts.

The need is great and we want to see as many people as possible reach their destiny. We want every home to receive a water filtration system in San Isidro, Honduras in 2019. We would also like to acquire the vocational training center property. We would like to see a minimum of 40 more students have access to education. We would like to see 25 more families receive pilas. In Metekata, Malawi we would like to see 200 more individuals have access to home ownership.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
