Poverty is multiple conditions, and requires multidimensional approaches to solve its complications on human well-being.

We fight Poverty Holistically - It's man's # enemy.
As of now, most of the global poor live in sub-Saharan Africa. The average poverty rate for sub-Saharan Africa stands at about 41 percent, and of the world’s 28 poorest countries, 27 are in sub-Saharan Africa all with a poverty rate above 30% Just as poverty is multidimensional conditions, our programs are multidimensional in nature focusing on vulnerable children, women, people with chronic conditions by giving them the tools they need to change their lives. Extreme Poverty makes self-health care impossible altogether. Healthcare affordability is impossible with extreme poverty – a reason preventable, curable and manageable diseases continue an increase and kill more people in Sub-Saharan Africa. Being poor means, you lack many things, including education, access to basic social services, healthcare, food and and security.

Teenage pregnancy is a serious problem in Liberia.
