PROGRAM AREAS

AGRICULTURE

As part of the Habitat Aid Initiative's mission to address root causes of poverty, we work with families to improve agriculture and conservation. 

 

Our initiatives help farmers increase crop quality through the use of new technologies; thereby, enables farmers to reclaim land that was once unusable thereby producing more food and family income. Families who have lost wage earners to HIV/AIDS, conflict, or migratory labor patterns work with Habitat Aid Initiative to develop new farming skills in order to build more stable and secure futures.

 

Habitat Aid Initiative works to improve the lives of those who serve through sustainable production, increased incomes, responsible use of resources, and community empowerment. Because most of the world's people living in developing countries live in rural areas, improving agriculture and protecting natural resources is fundamental to overcoming poverty.

EDUCATION

Education is at the heart of social economic development and has the power to reduce poverty, improve health and promote democracy. Educated people can make thoughtful and informed decisions which will positively affect their family, their community, and their future. Our approach to education includes working with schools to identify and remove barriers to education, especially for girls.

 

We mobilize local leaders to invest in education, assist educators in strengthening their capacity to support learning at the primary and secondary level, and partner with local organizations to strengthen their capacity to support education.

 

One in five adults in the developing world cannot read or write. This problem is especially pronounced for females. Women's illiteracy rates exceed 70 percent in more than 20 nations and over 80 million girls in the developing world do not attend school.

 

Studies show that improvements in education for girls can lead to increased family income, improved health and nutrition, reduced fertility rates, and decreased child and maternal mortality.

 

The scouting program in Kenya is responsible for teaching good hygiene, healthy behaviors and personal sustainability.

HEALTH SERVICES

Poor health is a key cause of poverty and good health is a key factor in overcoming it. Healthy children are able to grow mentally and physically, becoming healthy adults who are productive members of society. Habitat Aid Initiative takes a comprehensive approach to helping people improve and protect their well-being. This approach promotes healthy behaviors, empowers communities to prevent and manage health risks, and supports local health clinics in providing high-quality health services and supplies.

 

Nearly all of our work has an impact on health: agricultural innovation means better nutrition, income earning activities pay for food and health care, education projects help people learn to care for themselves.

 

Each year, more than 8 million children die from preventable or treatable illnesses. We need your support to educate mothers in ways they can protect their children.

WATER & SANITATION

Besides being key to sustaining life, water is vital for all agricultural, industrial, and rural enterprises. To ensure there are sufficient resources to meet all of these needs, Habitat Aid Initiative projects encourage integrated management of water for agriculture and other economic activities, as well as health and sanitation. We work to ensure that the poor have access to water sources and help communities take responsibility for protecting those sources. Bringing safe water and sanitation to communities increases school attendance, improves health, and gives people more time and energy to generate income. This one resource helps create several sustainable solutions to poverty.

 

Poor people consistently name lack of water among the main causes and consequences of their poverty.

 

By 2025, 48 countries are expected to face severe water shortages, potentially affecting the lives of more than 1 billion people.
