What We Do

PARTNER WITH A LOCAL ORGANIZATION

We come alongside already established organizations who are a part of the community. Knowing the culture and issues of that community helps us have the local people’s trust.

ASSESS THE RESOURCES & NEEDS

We first seek to observe and listen. We then identify what preventable problems the community suffers from and see what resources and structure we can build on to bring transformation.

TRAIN COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS

As trusted members of the community, community health workers act as a frontline measure of prevention. They are equipped to reach people who don’t have easy access to medical care.

CREATE A SUSTAINABLE PROGRAM

We will create a program that will be the people’s program, capable of running without our continuous outside support. The program will change the course of their community for the better.

AND THIS CYCLE REPEATS

This cycle then continues to repeat as Community Health Workers then train others within their community.

Why Community Health Workers Are Needed

Every day people suffer and die from preventable diseases—problems that could be treated or completely avoided. Too often the knowledge, skills and resources to treat and prevent health problems do not reach those in greatest need. There is a gap of health knowledge, leading to poor health behaviors. This is why Community Health Workers are needed.

 

Community Health Workers are uniquely situated as members of their community to be a bridge in this gap. By educating local people in a community, equipping them with health knowledge and basic first aid skills, these Community Health Workers are empowered to help improve health behaviors and prevent diseases and deaths. This education is powerful and something that can be passed on freely to friends and family, creating change for generations to come.

WHAT IS A COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKER?

A Community Health Worker (CHW) is an individual who receives training as a first line of defense in providing health education and awareness along with first aid within their local community to which they are already a member of to help prevent diseases.
