A program of projects to take the Debark region of Ethiopia out of poverty and become self sustaining. We will work with this one region to ensure everyone has access to clean water, basic healthcare, education and sufficient income to support themselves before moving to another region.
It ran from 10:00 AM, 6 December 2010 to 10:00 AM, 4 January 2011
The program's aim is to make the region self sustaining. We discuss the needs of the local villagers in detail and then provide capital to fund the infrastructure. We do not give any aid. The projects we work on cover: Clean Water, Basic Healthcare, Access to Education & Agriculture.These areas allow the population to improve their health, reduce the time needed to fetch water, allow the children to gain qualifications and provide an income enabling them to be self supporting.
We only work on one region at a time so we are focussed on attaining the goals of that region rather than spraying the money ineffectively over a larger area. Overall we estimate the region requires ¬£1.5-¬£2mn to ensure all villagers have clean water, schools, a healthpost, improved agriculture and access to local markets to allow a decent income level. All funds go directly to the projects as we are 100% run by volunteers and have no UK offices etc to pay for. All projects are thoroughly vetted
