We work to provide short-term relief to communities in need and we make long-term capital commitments that will improve the community's overall quality of life.We fulfill these objectives by providing "BASIC" humanitarian services:
- Basic short and long term medical care
- Assistance in developing educational and literacy programs
- Sanitation and water purification systems
- Instruction and partnership in micro-enterprise
- Collaborative training in leadership development
The exploratory phase of a Adopt-a-Village International project identifies a community in need. In most cases, individuals want to improve conditions in their community but lack the material resources to realize their goals. In the short term, we network with community leaders to assess local needs and requests.
Together we define the immediate needs of the community and devise a long-term plan for executing more comprehensive projects. Our long-term goals are to provide ongoing, self-supporting solutions with a strong emphasis on education, sustainable construction techniques and local materials.In every project, Adopt-a-Village International operates on the core values of:
We are committed to the highest integrity at all times and in all interactions, with donors, program recipients, staff and volunteers.
We will achieve maximum effectiveness through excellence, quality projects, communication and a dynamic work environment.
We work to create sustainable and long-lasting change in partnership with local communities and organizations.
We will maintain financial strength and practice impeccable stewardship of all our resources.
We are a nonsectarian, humanitarian organization and therefore practice inclusiveness of all faiths, ethnicities and backgrounds. We value diversity at all levels of our organization.
