Economic Renewal of African Communities

$210 $84,790
Raised Remaining


Triple the income of communities by investing in child, health, and economic rights; registering co-ops; and creating working local economies.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

This project will organize poor communities through media, vocational training and child support initiatives. It is a globally significant localization program. African communities will be renewed as the most modern of business institutions.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through cooperative organizing, member communities will be able to grow food and feed. From income, they will be able to pay school fees for all children under 18 and invest in a local productive base, restoring the best African group values.

Potential Long Term Impact

After five years of voluntary work there is a demonstration--a village and a provincial program advocated by church and civil society in Kwa-Zulu Natal (a poor, rural, high AIDS-infection province). Change in national policy.
