A holistic approach to helping lives and communities in an increasingly interconnected and vulnerable world.
Almost all health centers in the countries where we operate charge patients and are staffed at best with a nurse. TEEEM medical facilities are staffed by doctors, and the patient care is administered for FREE. Many of our patients suffer from life-threatening and often preventable illnesses not seen in the developed world, such as malaria, gastrointestinal / diarrhea problems, respiratory ailments and general wounds and infections. With medicines often costing less than $2 per patient, many people can be saved or have their life dramatically improved for less than $5 per person with just a single visit to one of our health centers.
We give microloans in small amounts, often $100 or less to individual women. They in turn form groups of 10 women or more and create small sustainable businesses – making competition and cooperation work together for greater hope and better futures.
Food and Education
Many students, especially during periods of drought or a country’s dry season, suffer from malnourishment, which puts them at a great disadvantage in gaining an education. If education is crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty, then food distribution is the key ingredient. Our school food program, which provides one hot meal per day at costs as little as $1 or less per student, has a great positive effect in terms of student attendance and learning.
