Voluteer and offer financial services and education to low income earners.
The income of the poor population shall be increased through: Asset transfer, coaching, skills training, food, savings promotion, access to health services.
Volunteers will be involved in a number of activities:
-Teaching and offering financial advice to groups such
-Keeping simple books of accounts
-Investments and savings.
We will be using a model to help low income earners increase their income using Graduation approach:
Food and cash stipends
Access to health services
By reducing vulnerability and increasing earnings and savings, financial services allow poor households to make the transformation from "every-day survival" to "planning for the future."
Households are able to send more children to school for longer periods and to make greater investments in their children's education. Increased earnings from financial services lead to better nutrition and better living conditions, which translates into a lower incidence of illness. Increased earnings also mean that clients may seek out and pay for health care services when needed, rather than go without or wait until their health seriously deteriorates.

Visit the white sand beaches
