Project #1: Housing – To provide resources to renovate existing homes or build new ones to protect the inhabitants from the elements. Decent housing is one of their most felt needs.

Project #2: Water Pumps, Sanitation and Health – To address the problems of hygiene, dental care, proper use of water, hand washing, toilets, and sanitation – the primary causes of illnesses and diseases by:

  • Assisting the community in installing water pumps in the villages as a source of clean drinking water.
  • Sponsoring seminars and training programs to educate the community on proper healthy hygiene practices.

Project #3: Medical Mission – To improve access to basic health services by improving health awareness and financial resources.

  • Improve health awareness by educating communities on healthy practices, such as nutrition, healthy cooking, and basic disease prevention/treatment.
  • Improve financial resources by sponsoring potential individuals for Community Healthcare Workers’ training and create funding for medications and hospitalization of serious cases.

Project #4: Livelihood – To improve financial resources that will improve the low quality of life by:

  • Establishing funds that can assist them to own a piece of land they can cultivate, reducing the need to be nomads in search of new land on which to plant.
  • Coordinating the services of government agriculture specialists to introduce ideas on gardening, planting vegetables, and other produce that are marketable to generate a source of income.

Project #5: Education – To increase access to education for parents and children to improve their way of life by:

  • Teaching parents that the advantages of education and literacy enable them to understand basic information, their rights, and available assistance; and in turn, they can motivate their children to attend school.
  • Initiating literacy and numeracy programs to help parents and children with basic skills.
  • Providing bicycles to students who live far from the school for school transportation.

Project #6: Spiritual Enrichment – To reduce or break the cycle of negative traditional beliefs that hinder indigenous communities from experiencing progress in their overall life by sending missionaries to introduce spirituality as a relationship with God (not a religion of dole-outs), that improves the quality of present life and the anticipation of the hereafter.
