Engage Now Africa employs a community-based asset model, through which we engage local communities to solve problems using talent and resources available locally. Working closely with ministries of health, law enforcement, local governments and tribal organizations, we facilitate a broad range of community training initiatives. ENA brings financial resources, curriculum, expertise and oversight.
In our health posts and clinics, bi-weekly trainings focus on well-baby care and nutrition, clean water and sanitation education. Our adult literacy, vocational training and micro-credit programs meet in hundreds of vulnerable communities. These community groups acquire vital skills that lead to economic self-reliance.
Our objective is always to increase the local capacity of individuals to solve their own problems. Our albinism outreach has provided broad training and community sensitization regarding the plight of those affected with albinism—and to increase the educational and economic opportunities available to those who suffer. Today, most of our trainings and outreach are conducted by those afflicted with the genetic disorder. They traditionally viewed themselves as the victims, but today, these valued partners are the trainers and advocates.
Our Ending Modern Slavery initiative has conducted community trainings in hundreds vulnerable communities, training over 16,000 people on the tactics used by human traffickers. The community members then become the strongest allies in this fight and uncounted future potential victims have been armed with the information to prevent their capture and trafficking.
Asset based community development programs are designed to invite individual participation at every level--their involvement is critical.
Initiatives significantly reduce disease, suffering, and the disenfranchisement of the poor and lead to greater self-reliance.
Our trainings focus on vulnerable families and communities. Amputees and people with disabilities and with health conditions.
