OUR PROGRAMS

 

We need a new model for humanitarian aid. One that is sustainable and empowers the people directly impacted by crisis to be met with dignity and hope, applying their skills to rebuild lives using modern technology and cross cultural collaboration. In this way, we can break the cycle of disaster and dependency in the world by addressing root causes and creating new paradigm solutions.

 

Take a look at all of the work we are doing worldwide.  From Uganda to Serbia to Arizona, we are making a difference in the lives of displaced people.

SUSTAINABLE VILLAGE
Bidi Bidi Refugee Camp, Uganda

Bidi Bidi, in Uganda, is one of the newest and largest refugee camps in the world.  Over 300,000 people live here, mainly South Sudanese refugees fleeing war and famine, 80% are women and children. 2 million refugees live in Uganda.

We are building the first ever sustainable village inside a refugee camp to address the inability of aid to provide basic necessities for residents. We hope this will be a new model for looking at camps as new cities and constructing them responsibly in the future.
