Poor Afghans in Afghanistan are particularly vulnerable in times of disaster whether natural or economic. Those without jobs, food or homes face starvation in harsh winter weather or after other natural disasters or following being displaced. In May 2014 devastating landslides struck a small village in the Afghan province of Badakhshan and AIL was able to use funds from this project to help with the relief work.
Fighting poverty, broadening access to decent housing, reducing CO2 emissions: "Association La Voute Nubienne" takes the three challenges with "Earth Roof for the Sahel": + a ROOF, the Nubian Vault, an ancient technique for comfortable, long-lasting, healthy, economical and eco-sustainable houses, requiring only mud-bricks and rocks; + a SKILL, training on-the-job to apprentice masons from rural communities in need; + a MARKET of autonomous NV small enterprises is pump-primed.
The Safer World Fund was created by three people who lost loved ones during the 9/11 terrorist acts in 2001. Rather than respond to the tragedy with anger, the founders chose to honor 9/11 victims by helping the people of Afghanistan. The Fund promotes education, health care and economic opportunity to counter the sway of extremists and terrorist tactics.
Combatants for Peace (C4P) are building playgrounds and organizing children's theater programs in memory of a child, Abir, who touched so many hearts. The playgrounds, all connected with a Palestinian kindergarten or elementary school in the West Bank, are constructed by professionals with Israeli and Palestinian former combatants working together to help. New, the C4P teams are coaching children's theater programs at each school to help youth raise awareness of their village's story.
In Palestine's Jordan Valley, one of the most marginalized areas, women must travel long distances across checkpoints to receive pre-natal and maternity care. Rebuilding Alliance helped equip a OB/GYN Clinic at the new Emergency care center in Ein Al Beida to provide care to mothers and babies in the northern Jordan Valley. Now we ask your help to send a filmmaker first, then recruit delegation of care providers to offer in-depth training to the doctors, nurses, nurse midwives and parents.

Our facilities provide primary and preventive care, with a mother-child focus. Lives are saved everyday by having on-site, round-the-clock urgent care facilities, a well-stocked pharmacy.
