WHO WE ARE
Today, there is a real need to put an end to poverty. Extensive progress has been made so far, but there are still social problems to address, child hunger, disease, teenagers at risk from addiction, poor education, high unemployment, and families in need of support.
WHO WE ARE , Nafas Foundation sprung from the belief that Non-Governmental Organizations and charitable institutions can effect real change in our developing nation.
NAFAS was founded in 2017 as a private non-profit, non-governmental and non-political organization. Since that time, 162 families have benefited from direct NAFAS assistance. During the fiscal year 2019, NAFAS supported more than 25 programs.
This is exactly the kind of vital work that Global Communities does every day across the globe. Investing on people at the local level, in partnership with civil society, and the private sector to help bring about peace, prosperity, and stability .
NAFAS creates an environment where children are educated and nurtured, families have adequate food, shelter, clothing, and health care, natural resources are protected, women are empowered, people are healthy and live peaceably. For people to be healthy, they must have nutritious food. For women to be empowered, they must be educated. Recognizing this connectednes, and integrating our development programs accordingly, is NAFAS strength.
In this report, you can read about the many ways NAFAS is engaging to invest in people and give them the tools they need to form stable, peaceful, and prosperous.
