SERVICE OVERVIEW

Community Health Projects build and reinforce the importance of passion within resource-restricted communities. They use an asset-based community engagement approach that focuses on strengths rather than needs and weaknesses. These projects help to bring solidarity, financial support, material support, and exposure to innovative ideas that are led by local health care workers, community leaders, and other native change agents. Thus focusing on building local, sustainable capacity, skills, and fueling local passion to create a better tomorrow.
