In addition to immersion ACTperiences, we partner with global communities to help assess critical needs and solve problems facing our domestic and global partners. Here are our current initiatives:
Income Generating Activities
If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. If you teach him to fish you feed him for a lifetime. We equip communities with resources and opportunities for business development and entrepreneurship. In 2015, we microfinanced a corn mill to help local farmers generate income that help support families, children, and schools. We also helped construct a multipurpose kitchen to assist entrepreneurs with selling and distributing baked goods.
Alternative Energy Resources
Utilizing renewable energy is critical if we want to adjust to a changing global landscape. Over 30% of the world’s countries lean heavily on renewable energy and we empower our partners to do the same. In 2016, we launched an alternative energy computer lab equipped with laptops and desktops to help save and reuse energy.
Reducing Barriers to Access
A child’s access to education should not be hindered by a lack of basic necessities or resources. In an effort to reduce barriers to education and promote distraction-free learning, we partner with Compassion International-Ghana to help over 350 children gain access to critical-need items such as: school clothes, school fees, and nutritious meals.
Cross-Cultural Collaboration for A Better Africa
This one-day conference unites Africans in the diaspora for an engaging conversation to deconstruct stereotypes and false narratives affecting global black communities. As a result, attendees develop practical solutions and build bridges between millennials around the globe.
