Why support this clinic?
There are many, many worthy projects in this world and much need. Why support this one?
Because the need is great and the community is committed. The ideas and leadership for this clinic are coming from the community itself. Their goal is to have a modern, innovative health clinic. They are incorporating elements in the design and planning not often seen in rural African clinics, such as electronic recording keeping and a possible health insurance program, from the beginning.
The CBO is also preparing for the sustainable future of this health center. It knows that it is one thing to build a clinic, but another to keep it running.
Income-generating activities to help support the clinic in the future are being investigated. Bee keeping, a coffee cooperative, and an insurance program are some ideas, among others.
