There are some people who are unable to benefit by our education and livelihood help, such as the elderly, handicapped, and infants. This is why we also offer charity to those that most need it.
Next to the lack of educational opportunities, we see the lack of medical care as the biggest problem in rural areas. An unhealthy community cannot prosper. As we improve poorer communities, we will strive to assure basic medical care is within reach for all.

In poor rural areas, education alone may not be enough for everyone, nor possible for every person. This is why we are also helping to generate business and job opportunities for those less educated or those wanting to put their education to best use.
We believe that improving living conditions by modernization will help alleviate many burdens faced by impoverished people. Having access to safe drinking water, sanitation, and electricity has potential to dramatically improve lives. This is why our work includes projects to improve infrastructure.
Jibajiba Secondary School is a great example of a current project. BAOBAB STRONG provides support for this school, which was built from the ground up in a poor rural area in Zimbabwe. Prior to this school being built, there was no option for children in this area to attend school past age 12. The school has given students new opportunities for improving their lives and their community.
Living in Poverty
Many people in developed countries are unaware of the harsh conditions endured by much of the world.
We see education as the primary key to opening up opportunities and breaking the cycle of poverty. Well-educated youth can better serve their families and communities. We are actively building schools where they are most needed.
