Summary

Building on our most recent GlobalGiving Projects, CHAT plans to continue our mission of mitigating extreme poverty by escalating our family planning and basic healthcare services. The communities we serve are remote, thus we employ a two-pronged strategy in order to ensure efficacy; (1) we use the most appropriate means of mobility (motor vehicles, camels, bicycles, and foot) (2) we employ Community Based Health Workers (CBHW) to ensure proper communication and a more sustainable approach.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Poverty! No access to affordable family planning or health services, which often results in dangerous abortions, infanticide, and schoolgirl pregnancies,prostitution, HIV/AIDS, diseases, such as malaria and TB, conditions, such as obstetric fistulas, which place women at great risk of being ostracized from society, hostile and harsh terrains where infrastructure is very weak, and a rapidly growing population, lacking resources to sustain both healthy individuals and healthy ecosystems.

How will this project solve this problem?

CHAT addresses the Problems and Challenges the communities face through the support of a CBHW strategy, the use of an integrated mobile approach, and services inclusive of treatment, health education and preventative initiatives. We have a simple yet effective strategy, which we have honed for over 10 years. This strategy has allowed us to consistently REACH our targets. We then do our best to solve the stated challenges one girl, boy, man, or woman at a time..

Potential Long Term Impact

CHAT aims to strengthen individual, family, and environmental health through a comprehensive approach to care delivery, in order to have the greatest long-term impact. Our services center on Health, but Education is the base and the tool we use to work towards Sustainability. Your donation will go a long way in accelerating the country's quest for attaining the UN Millennium Development Goals- eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, and ensuring environmental sustainability.
