With election season in full-swing, there has been a lot of focus on poverty, unemployment and education all over the media. Every politician claims to have the solution for these serious issues plaguing millions, but unfortunately many of these “quick fixes” fail to truly solve the crisis at hand. They mostly provide temporary solutions to long-standing problems, serving as a band-aid rather than a permanent solution.
The current model is broken, but it can be fixed.
Our latest partner, Self-Sustaining Communities, has developed a new model for solving the problems of poverty, unemployment and crime. They organize and host community green projects that provide for the basic needs of the individuals, while also strengthening the bonds within the community. It is an innovative approach that focuses on healing the individual on both a critical needs level, as well as a deeper, transformative level.
It’s time to rethink how we approach the poverty problems in our community. Check our Self-Sustaining Communities dynamic infographic to learn more about their work and how you can help:
