"Everyone can make a difference"
(Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere, 1977)
Green Waters' main target group is women. We keep in mind that they are the primary care givers to the children and the values children learn during the first years of their lives usually benefits society for many years to follow.
Our areas of focus are poverty reduction, health, gender, environment, education, youth, human rights and social welfare.
Green Waters aims to promote gender equality and empowerment of the women by enabling their contribution to household incomes. We do so by sponsoring capacity building projects for women,building support networks and giving guidance where it is needed.
Our support will ensure an increased financial income for the women participating in our projects. This enables regular school attendance for their children by limiting the necessity of the children having to participate in income earning activities for the household during the times, when they should be attenting schools or do their homework.
Education received by the younger generation is an important tool in their adult life and to communities. Education and knowledge contributes to overall reduction of extreme poverty effects related to hunger, illiteracy, increased crime rates, abuse, young pregnancies, prostitution and new infections of STD such as HIV/Aids.
The overall desire is to mitigate the effects of poverty through our projects, by helping local communities gain crucial business skills. We believe this to be the most sustainable response to eradication of extreme poverty.
