Mission

BUILDING STRONG COMMUNITIES
 

Everything we do is to create opportunities for those who have had few opportunities in their lives. Because everyone deserves an honest chance to become self-sustainable and have a solid living.

The projects we initiate are focused on education, healthcare, skills development and enterprise development. Through these projects, are beneficiaries are able to become self-sustainable and have solid living conditions.

Vision

NO MORE EXTREME POVERTY

This is the vision of Rhiza. Extreme poverty is an injustice. In Africa people are still confronted on a daily basis with poverty and all negative side effects.

In our project areas the average income is usually below € 3,- per day. This extreme poverty has direct negative effects on for example access to education and healthcare. We aim towards a world in which extreme poverty is something of the past.

Rhiza Cycle

Poverty and all negative side effects are still part of daily life in Africa. In collaboration with the local community, companies and the government we change this negative cycle. Together we build strong and self-sustainable communities. We do this through our Rhiza Cycle. The strength of this cycle is the teamwork (ownership/buy-in) with local partners. This lays the foundation for the self-sustainability of a project. We work demand based in the sense that we only initiate a project in areas where the community identified the need for the project themselves.
