Build: We build quality infrastructure for health and education facilities.
Sustain: We are local leaders who believe in our own capacity to drive economic and social growth. We believe that the key to true local ownership is in financial sustainability when the community can effectively run income generating projects, take pride in their accomplishments, and initiative in the way forward. In 2017, our social enterprises generated 90% of our operating budget!

…the standards of social services by offering quality and affordable education and health care to ALL community members.
…the economy by starting and supporting local businesses, and employing hundreds of community members.
…the hearts of community members through spiritual development centered on love and compassion for one another.
