Well

Slideshow

Business Without Borders donated funds to provide materials and labor to refurbish a non working water system and perform much needed roof repairs at the Sugod Elementary School in Rombion, Phillipines. This is an impoverished area hit hard by the super typhoon that devastated the Phillipines in 2013. Materials had to be ferried in from other islands as well as some brought from the States by a U.S Businessman, who spear headed this project. Slideshow

Well

Through the generosity of a special donor, Business Without Borders was able to fund the drilling of a well at the Mbekelweni, Swaziland Africa Care Point. In addition to providing a source of fresh drinking water to the 200 children per day that this care point feeds, the well will also provide a source of fresh water for the neighboring community as well as provide irrigation for the Business Skills Initiative food garden project.

Oven

Oven

Business Without Borders donated funds to provide a commercial oven to the Children’s Cup Business Skills Training Center in Swaziland, Africa. A Swazi trainer is teaching local high school students to produce baked goods which in turn are sold in the local community.  While also providing a source of income to the local trainer and school fees to the high school students, the excess profits will go back into the Business Skills Center to help fund its operation.


Tilapia

In addition, Business Without Borders is also partnering with the Skills Center to set up a prototype Tilapia Hydroponic Tank System that can be replicated for a relatively low start-up cost. Once the operation is proven profitable, tanks like the prototype could be set up in homesteads across Swaziland. These fish farms could provide jobs and income for local families as well as add much needed protein for their diets. The tanks could be set up at CarePoints, where the thousands of children fed there might be treated to fish in their cooking pots. The neighboring country of South Africa is a large export market for the Mozambique breed of Tilapia grown in Swaziland.

Container Challenge

Container

Business Without Borders worked with local businesses to acquire a shipping container, supply collection and storage locations and provide transportation and shipping for the Project 3:17 Container Challenge. A project that collected over 20000 lbs of clothes and diapers for the needy in Romania. Working in conjunction with its partner organization The Smiles Foundation, the clothes will be sold at very low cost to the population in Oradea, Romania through the Smiles Enterprise Initiative. The proceeds will then be used to buy food and supplies for the elderly and disabled. Excess clothes and all diapers and other supplies donated will be given away to the poorest of the poor. The Container will converted into housing for a homeless family with volunteer labor. Business Without Borders was proud to sponsor this project in conjunction with Project 3:17 and The Smiles Foundation and local and international businesses large and small. This was truly businesspeople making a difference!

Well in Wambe, Peru

Business Without Borders partnered with Global Advance in the Fall of 2010 to drill two wells in Wambe, Peru.

This is a remote village a few hours from Iquitos of about 120 indians without clean drinking water.
Iquitos is a city in the middle of the amazon jungle.

In these areas people do not have access to clean water. Usually water is taken from a open cistern that collects rain water. This cistern also doubles as the community laundry station as well as a place to bathe. Because of this the children who have not built up a defense system to all of the bacteria present in the water suffer from diarrhea, which leads to malnutrition, development problems, disease and death. In some communities malaria is a problem because the stagnant pools where the villagers go to bathe, wash clothes and collect water for consumption are the perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

By drilling a simple well we are able to provide a long term solution to part of the problem. The other part of the solution is the work that our local partner is able to do in teaching good hygiene and nutrition. We have found that without clean water it is almost impossible to do any further community development. A clean water well enables us to lay the foundation for sustainable change with a price tag that is palatable to most donors. For the price of a coffee a day you can improve the health, life and development of hundreds of children.

Water is a core mission of Business Without Border and we are continuing to accept donations to fund these projects.

Generator

Generator

Business Without Borders was able to provide funds for the purchase of a generator for Lady Willingdon Hospital, a 55 bed hospital located in Manali which is located the foothills of the Indian Himalayas. This was part of a larger project to upgrade the electrical substation and wiring of the hospital which was built in 1935. The hospital provides quality care for the inhabitants of the area at affordable prices. This generator will allow the hospital to operate as normal when the local electrical grid often goes down.
