We know that nonprofit leaders are eager to return to their international target sites. The past two years, public health challenges have delayed or prevented critical education programs, poverty reduction campaigns, peace & reconciliation efforts, and clean water projects. There’s a lot of ground to make up! We are here to help your team get back on track with logistics support & project management services. Check out our website below for information about our work - and send us a message about your nonprofit goals!

Endurance Racing in the Wadi Rum Desert

While working in Jordan recently we had an opportunity to catch up with an old friend, Ali Abu Rabee. He’s getting ready to compete in a 180 KM endurance race on horseback through the Wadi Rum desert, south of Amman. The race will take place over 2 days next week, and we captured some footage at the stables during a recent training session. Learn more about these endurance races below in our short video about Ali’s preparation for the upcoming race.

This is my friend Salah Harb (in blue). He lives in Kuwait, but spends much of his time in Amman, Jordan where he operates an orphanage for Syrian children. Salah and I spent the day together yesterday - and we talked about all of the foundations these children need, from housing, medical, & education costs to reliable role models. We are excited to share more about his work soon!

Hope Shines, Inc.

Like many of you, our work was heavily impacted by the pandemic. This is the first of 3 projects we were able to complete in Rwanda & Uganda before returning to Colorado. Take a look at some of the wonderful work this Colorado based nonprofit is doing in Kigali! Hope Shines, Inc.

EXCITED! Check out our new video that was filmed by our friends at Big Picture Media Company this past February! We are so proud of the work being done in #Rwanda, especially now in uncertain and restrained times. We hope this adds some better visual illustration of what our work looks like. Give us your opinion in our comments and please share!

These screen-grabs are from our work with Hope Shines, Inc. in Rwanda. They have implemented a soap sharing program in the community that repurposes unused bars from local hotels. These rescued bars get treated, then reworked into soap that can be given to students and their families to promote good hygiene and sanitation. Not a bad idea! What other ideas can help promote sanitation and increase awareness about public health? Let us know in the comments how your nonprofit is getting the message out about healthy social distancing practices!

We recently visited an agricultural cooperative in Uganda that grows mushrooms. With the help of Africa Development Promise the group was able to expand their operation, using profits from mushroom sales to buy pigs and goats that can generate further income.

The cooperative style project allows its members to share the business risk - so that a failed harvest won’t bankrupt an individual. This is critical as most subsistence farmers rely on rainfall in an ever changing climate. Programs like this give women in rural communities a chance to become economically independent. Studies show that when women in rural Africa make money, they spend around 90% on their immediate family needs, creating a more sustainable family environment where children have a better opportunity to go to school and stay in school. This reliable income can change communities where women are often marginalized. It’s also important in places like Rwanda where conflict and genocide has placed large burdens on the female heads of families. In addition, it’s an opportunity for employment among younger populations who would otherwise need to leave family farms to find work in larger cities.

Africa Development Promise brings opportunity to entrepreneurial women and creates leadership roles for a demographic that’s often shut out of those spaces. The work they do is critical. I hope you’ll take the opportunity to follow their programs and learn more about their cause!

This week we’re filming with Africa Development Promise - a nonprofit based in Denver that works in both Rwanda and Uganda. Since 2014, they’ve focused on empowering women working in agriculture, helping them move from subsistence farming to commercial cooperatives that generate income and expand opportunity for community groups.

Most women in rural Rwanda work in subsistence agriculture. One challenge is finding reliable access to clean water for these agricultural projects. Today we visited a site that ADP assists with management training, infrastructure solutions, and technical assistance. This farm sits on 14 acres in the Bugesera District of Rwanda and employs 54 women, providing opportunity to a demographic that is often not allowed to own land, and has little to no access to credit. What questions do you have about subsistence farming or agricultural cooperatives in rural Africa? Let us know in the comments!

Big Picture Media works with nonprofits in the developing world that are dedicated to education, sustainability, and public health. As these models change to address local challenges, we focus on solutions that empower communities, alleviate poverty, and build on existing programs.

We’ve found that sustainable development methods can be hard to define - and difficult to implement. Without local support, even the best intentions can limit opportunity. That’s why we aim to dive deeper into the methods and practices our partners create, and share those ideas to better understand our collective global challenges.

The goal for our current film projects in east Africa is to help you understand the role of international nonprofits - and share stories that help define effective development strategies. We hope you’ll join us for an honest conversation about international aid work that can promote lasting change.

Over the past week we’ve been working with Hope Shines, Inc. - a Denver based nonprofit operating in Rwanda. I say Denver based, but their resource allocation, mentoring programs, and leadership courses are all led by local staff. The organization focuses on orphans and vulnerable children in the community, providing things like school uniforms, life skills training, and even health insurance. Visit hopeshines.org for more information and keep an eye out for our upcoming short film about this great project!

At ten years old, he and his family were forced to flee their home due to the stigma against albinism in central Africa.
