Our proven community-driven approach is built on four main pillars


Access to essential healthcare is imperative for individuals to thrive in other aspects of their life. We identify and address emerging issues, create a response plan, and implement the solutions in an approachable way.


Education, and especially literacy, grant the capacity to not only identify needs and goals, but also the capability to pursue solutions. We work to overcome barriers preventing high achieving girls from continuing their education and provide resources to see them through to graduation.


Sustainable development requires capacity building in order to be effective long term. We strive to create systems and networks that will sustain and support our projects for the long term.


Society cannot implement change without the support throughout all levels of governance. We work with everyone from the village elders and religious leaders to federal government officials to ensure a united front on the implementation of our projects and message.

Since 2016, political instability has allowed violence from extremist terrorist groups to spread, damaging the already fragile social systems in the country.

Due to the rise in extremist groups, people are constantly exposed to violence, destruction of their communities, sexual exploitation, and intimidation.
