THE CURA MODEL
We choose an NGO based on their location and needs and partner with them to build a medical clinic that will provide general medicine and minor trauma cases by hiring a local physician and/or a nurse for triage and treatment for a once a week affordable medical treatment. We will also provide education to locals regarding basic medical aid, proper hygiene and preventable diseases.
Through implementation of permaculture practices in the areas we serve, we convert a selected parcel of land into a sustainable, high-yield producing system that will support the community in years to come. We will provide education and hands-on training in permaculture to locals to empower them to use this agro-ecology model to advance their own farming practices. We will also fund installation of water wells in areas where access to drinking water in limited.
1. Identify NGOs in developing countries with presence on the ground that do not currently provide medical aid or food-sovereignty solutions.
2. Collect information on their location, years in service, and relationship with the community they serve
3. Identify the nearest hospitals to areas of operation
4. Examine local agricultural practices and identify the nearest water sources
5.Estimate the area’s population as well as the population of surrounding villages
