Following the installation of three clean water wells in 2014, we partnered with the villages of Tsipasi and Korpehem to assess their needs. Together, we have created a course of action to empower and equip the communities to break the cycle of poverty in a holistic and sustainable way.
We agreed with the leaders of Tsipasi to help them build a school for the approximate 200 children in the area. We recently hired the school's headmaster, who will be leading the school and assisting with both the strategic vision and the daily operations. Education, or lack thereof, has a direct correlation to the poverty in the region, and we are thrilled to be a part of reshaping the future of the village by providing their children access to a high quality education.

Future proejcts will include partnering with the network of villages with transportation solutions, helping the farmers to take their produce to market. We will also be leveraging the already present network to develop a farmers co-op which will assist in economic development in the area.
While the school in Tsipasi is our current project, we are continually reviewing opportunities to empower and support the village of Korpehem.
