In order to actualize the long-term enhancement projects and reduce vulnerability of the marginalized people in developing countries recovering from disaster more in-kind support and funding is necessary. We cherish the opportunity to aid these  populations to empower themselves through ecologically minded activities and responsible natural resource use. Living as one with the land is a vital part of building coping capacity and reducing vulnerability across our globe.

PROViDE has realized the importance of participatory action, education and the necessity of skill building in effectively developing a truly resilient and sustainable community in Haiti and Sri Lanka. Treating individuals as charity cases perpetuates marginalization and increases a population’s dependency on external resources. Give someone a fish; they’ll eat for a day. Teach them how to fish; they’ll eat forever.

Thank you for your consideration in supporting long-term ecological solutions to stimulate struggling economies in devastated regions of developing nations recovering from disaster.
