We are always excited to partner with organizations that share our passion for creating meaningful and lasting change.
To ensure successful and productive collaborations, we have created a set of criteria that organizations and projects must fulfill before we partner with them.
We consider it important that projects
- follow proven models of successful aid work,
- are sustainable,
- have practical goals,
- express how goals will impact the community, and
- involve community members, especially women and youth.
We prefer to work on projects that
- raise awareness of worldwide water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) issues,
- train WASH educators,
- provide technical assistance to healthcare providers and/or teachers,
- empower impoverished women, youth, and vulnerable groups, and
- educate individuals on the economic benefits of disease prevention.
We work with organizations that
- focus on East African health and hygiene issues,
- benefit a significant number of community members,
- include community members when designing and implementing projects,
- sustain projects beyond a grant,
- have a bank account with at least two signatories, and
- hold an official certificate of registration in the country of operation.
