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.


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.

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.
