Health and Wellbeing
800 million people spend at least 10 percent of their household budgets on health expenses for themselves, a sick child or other family member. For almost 100 million people, these expenses are high enough to push them into extreme poverty, forcing them to survive on just $1.90 or less a day.
Our Programme Approach
The aim of the our Health & Wellbeing Programme is to not only to educate about healthy behaviours and core health issues and prevention, but to also provide resources and opportunity for quality health access, to see success toward SDG 3. Good Health and Wellbeing and SDG 6. Clean Water and Sanitation. We believe positive impact is possible through the means of community workshop delivery, community health clinics for access to medical care and providing medical checks, support for emergency medical care and paramedic training, and school-based interactive health workshops.
Our Health & Wellbeing Programme includes delivery of key curriculum that surround some of the major health issues that the communities we work with are experiencing, to ensure that beneficiaries are knowledgeable about their health. The following topics are the key focus of the Health Programme and will be developed into curricula specifically focused toward children as well as the wider community:
