BENEFITING: Ihangane Project

THE STORY:

"In my life, all is going well except for the problem which makes us sit together today (HIV). I am grateful for the nurses who give me advice on how to live a healthy life and how to care for my children. By sitting with others who have the same problem as I do, I feel stronger and more able to overcome my problems. My idea is for The Ihangane Project to find a way to  help more people in different regions who are still struggling with poor health and isolation.”

~ Nyiramajyambere Epafrodite

JOIN EPAFRODITE’S CALL TO ACTION!

A generous donor has come forward to offer a matching challenge grant of $15,000! This means that we have the potential of raising a total of $30,000. Most importantly, we can make Epafrodite’s idea a reality.

What would we do with $30,000?

WIth your help, The Ihangane Project can expand our training for nurses and Community Health Workers to an additional 13 health centers in Gakenke District of Rwanda, improving  the care for 6000 pregnant women each year and an additional 20,000 children under 5 years old. 

What will your individual donation provide?

  • $25 trains 110 village health workers to provide effective health education to the mothers of 3,186 children under 5 years of age
  • $100 produces 100kg of fortified porridge, enough to feed an impoverished family for one year
  • $250 trains 56 nurses to implement Continuous Quality Improvement programs at their health centers
  • $500 allows 50 HIV+ women to join an artisan cooperative to lift themselves out of poverty
  • $1000 produces 1.25 tons of fortified porridge, generating over $1300 in additional revenue
  • $2500 funds a community health building to provide essential nutrition, family planning, immunization, and health education services to over 1000 people who would otherwise walk 3 hours to the nearest health center

Our Success is Rooted in our Philosophy

At The Ihangane Project, we believe that healthy relationships are essential to thriving communities, and this begins when each person feels valued, capable, and hopeful in the future. We begin with health because this is one of the most vulnerable and essential connections - our relationship with our own bodies and our relationship with the person who is supporting our path to health.

What does this mean in practice?

Our team posed this question to sixty of our stakeholders- from nurses to community health workers, HIV+ mothers to smallholder farmers and at-risk artisans. Epafrodite’s response really inspired us!

“In my life, all is going well except for the problem which makes us sit together today (HIV). I am grateful for the nurses who give me advice on how to live a healthy life and how to care for my children. By sitting with others who have the same problem as I do, I feel stronger and more able to overcome my problems. We benefit from advice in our daily life and learn how to follow the line that is most important for us in our future life.”
