Building on the Assets of the African Woman
We believe that Africa needs solidarity and collaboration not pity and sympathy.
We are determined to support asset based grass roots goals than needs-based interventionist approaches. In order to realize this, we reach out to African women and rural communities, religious groups and non-religious organizations to promote educational initiatives, capacity-building, women empowerment, and rural water and sanitation projects
Food For Thought
It is simply a myth that poverty cannot be conquered. Worldwide poverty can be overcome if people all over the world realize that our destiny is tied. When someone in any part of the world dies of hunger, a part of me dies; if the environment is wounded in any part of the world, something of who I am is hurt; if someone somewhere in the world is humiliated and abused by poverty and unhealthy living conditions, my human dignity is also abused. What is required for poverty to remain in the world especially in Africa is for Africans to give up hope and non-Africans to treat the poverty of Africa as if it did not matter to world peace and prosperity. – Stan Chu Ilo
