We never come into a community and tell them what they need. Instead, we work WITH them to learn what the community’s greatest healthcare needs are. This collaboration leads to sustainable results; but best of all, it gives the community a sense of pride knowing they are leading the charge that will change the course of their community.
International HELP started with one person’s experience working with a community in Nicaragua. Our founder partnered with a clinic in Nicaragua and trained local people to be health workers, providing them with the skills, resources, platform, and group structure necessary to positively influence the health in their community. The program was created in a way to be sustainable and effective, run by the local people. Out of this successful program, International HELP was started with the desire to implement that same model in many places throughout the world, transforming one community at a time.
