VILLAGE EMPOWERMENT INITIATIVES
This is an initiative that can be integrated into your company’s corporate social responsibility plans, whilst changing the lives of a whole community for the better. We see that most big organisations really struggle in assisting villages or communities they trade in or with and we at Platform cares come into the picture to put structural social responsibility to assist the cooperate organisation and the village.
Our village programme gives individuals and organizations the opportunity to sponsor an African village/community and commit to lifting that community out of poverty. This programme encompasses all our existing projects and delivers them all in the ‘adopted’ village. The sponsor provides the funding that will help the village develop, through:
- Education through our Platform Cares Box Programme
- Medical Care through to our Medical Programme
- Empower women throughout Women’s Initiative Projects and Developments
We are working closely with different sponsors to establish and keep a relationship based on trust and involvement. With your support and the help of our dedicated teams on the ground, we can increase the number of villages and establish our different programmes where you wish us to operate.
The benefits that villagers can get from the Village programme are vast. By providing programmes for women and children, we are in fact providing benefits that whole villages can feel the advantage of, creating a more stable community for children to grow up in, giving them a higher chance of achieving a financially secure future. Adopting a village means that you can make change happen and help to break the circle of extreme poverty.
BUILDING COMMUNITIES: Our projects improve the facilities of villages and provide villagers with new places to learn and work, such as libraries, production centres and hospitals, all of which contribute towards the development of communities and improve their connectivity to the rest of the world.
WELFARE IMPROVEMENT: We deliver projects that improve the health and well-being of villagers, offering free medical care, consultations and safe drinking water to communities that would not otherwise have access to them.
FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE: Through our women’s enterprise programme we are ensuring that small villages become connected to each other through a chain of commerce, resulting in women sustaining a regular income to support their families through the demand of their businesses.
