The People We Serve
WHO WE ARE
"Care for Life made an enormous difference in Mbatwe. Before we were in darkness, but Care for Life showed us what needed to be done."
We help not only families, but entire villages take charge of their own future by teaching self-sustainability. It is each individual’s and collectively each village’s potential, effort and commitment that ultimately ignites a sustainable change. Care for Life provides the tools to help each individual to accomplish his or her goals, turning the downward spiral of poverty into an upward spiral of hope, opportunity and progress.
See what’s happening among the people we serve: 97% of families treat their drinking water…which has reduced the occurrences of diarrhea and sickness. 96% of our families sleep under a mosquito net…reducing the incidences of malaria. 96% of families use a latrine…which keeps them healthier so parents can provide for their families and children can go to school. 80% of adults can read and do basic math…so they can now sign their names on documents and find employment. 81% of children are attending school…which gives them the power in knowledge to make a better life. Each year an average of 4,700 bags of cement are earned and distributed as rewards…so that families can build improved latrines and stronger homes. Each year an average of 1,500 tests are given for HIV/AIDS…and referrals are given to those who tested positive for free treatment. Since the beginning over 6,000 children ages 9-14 have been taught AIDS prevention…to empower them with accurate knowledge to effectively prevent contracting the virus.
