Our Projects

All of our projects are based on our community engagement process done in collaboration with our community partners. Students work hand in hand with local communities to complete these sustainable initiatives and address Human Security issues.

Project Approach

We align our programs with the Seven Elements of Human Security as originally defined by the United Nations: Economic, Environmental, Food, Health, Political, Personal and Community. Our belief is that these elements of security are interconnected and in order to understand an issue in one area, you must look at how the other components are related to it. Our model has proven successful in the communities we have served to date and it is because we have taken a holistic look at the systemic issues that impact these communities. 

We also believe we can’t accomplish our goals alone and we actively seek partners to help us achieve a more resilient and sustainable world. Our projects focus on improving health outcomes by creating a healthy physical and social environment. The local economic and environmental systems also benefit. By empowering community members to direct all initiatives and employing local skilled tradespeople to supervise work on our building projects, we seek to enable individuals, families, and communities to take greater control over their health, wellbeing and environment.
