CLEAN WATER INITIATIVE

 

Globally; there are more than 650 million people living without access to clean drinking water. These beautiful children and families live mostly in isolated rural communities; and travel hours and miles on foot to gather water for themselves and their families for proper hydration, cooking, and bathing however; the water they collect contains water borne illnesses such as Amoebiasis, Shigellosis, Cholera, Cryptosporidiosis, and Giardia that make them sick and/or cause death from the continuous consumption of microorganisms in untreated or contaminated water. In countries where clean and accessible water is scarce; contaminated water kills more people than Malaria, HIV/Aids, Natural Causes, Violence and War with over 40% being small children under the age of 5. In the majority of these rural areas and underdeveloped countries; young girls and mothers are responsible for collecting over 70% of this water; totaling tens-of-billions of walking hours annually.  This is a big problem in these countries because it keeps children away from school a week or two at a time, and less time spent with their families. With convenient access to purified water; it enables the community members (children & adults) to get their lives back in order with the benefits of spending more time in school, giving farmers sufficient time to harvest crops, and earn decent wages that in turn; will combat destitution.

According to John Hopkins University (2015); the university estimates that the total global economic loss per annum resulting from poor water supply and sanitation at 260 billion US Dollars. Per World Bank studies, countries in sub-Saharan Africa, as well as Bangladesh and India, on average lose more than 4% and 6% of their Gross Domestic Product (GDP), respectively, due to inadequate sanitation. The evidence is clear: poor sanitation and inadequate water supply play a role in keeping countries poor.

TACKLING THE WATER CRISIS

At The Altruism Society, we are committed to assisting groups, nations, societies, and communities the right of entry to clean and safe drinking water. This is accomplished by professional know-how, educating community residents and staff members, and economic sustainability for water filtration, the construction of dams and wells, sanitation and hygiene habits, and protecting fresh water at all cost. The Altruism Society aids in the resolution of this crisis by collaborating with local experts and community members to identify, strategically plan, and execute the best sustainable solution in each location that our organization performs this work, whether it’s a Clean-Water-Well, Ceramic and/or BioSand Filter, Piped Water System, Rain Water Harvesting System, Solar Water Disinfection System (SODIS), or UV treatment. Once we identify which water purification method is the best alternative; our organization and our international partners will hands-on train and educate community members on sanitation and hygiene in addition to;  instituting a team of local Water Quality Technicians that will service and maintain the water purification system for many years to come. Our organization will supply them with the necessary tools, transportation, computer technology, and mobile phones the technicians to communicate and execute their jobs effectively. The Altruism Society plays a major role in all of our water projects, and once these projects are completed; we continue to fund and monitor them to ensure that clean drinking water continues to flow within these communities long after these systems are put into place.

There are remarkable economic gains that can be realized with improved drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. In fact; for every U.S. dollar invested in clean drinking water and sanitation; there is a fiscal return of $4 in U.S. currency resulting from health, productivity, and economic gains. According John Hopkins University Global Water Program (2015), it is estimated that the benefits of achieving universal access to improved sanitation would outweigh costs at least five-fold, and for improved drinking water at least two-fold, with a minimum combined economic benefit of over 220 billion US Dollars annually.

Access to purified drinking water and proper hygiene practices can save over 17,000 lives weekly globally. The Altruism Society is committed to meeting this challenge head on; and we will maintain a clear focus on eliminating this water crisis world-wide. Each monetary donation is a unyielding investment; it provides right of entry to clean drinking water, and is conceivably the single most powerful instrument for sparking economic development that humankind has ever acknowledged. A donation of $35 will bring clean water one child/adult today.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

 

R&D: Discovering new knowledge about cures and treatments for diseases, products, processes, and services, and then applying that knowledge to create new and improved products, processes, and services that will improve quality of life, protect the environment, and fill market needs.

AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

 

The majority of rural farmers in underdeveloped countries (Africa, Asia, Australia, Caribbean, and the Pacific), are underprivileged in each phase in the process of producing and selling crops. Large regions of soil are insufficient of nutrients that are essential for the growth and the maintenance of life. Rain showers are inconsistent; and innovative technology is in short supply. Credit is inadequate. Markets are frequently inaccessible or unproductive. However in spite of these issues, The Altruism Society knows that these impoverished and vulnerable countries can be the next global breadbasket.

 

In many of these Least Developed Countries (LDC’s); roughly 79% of these small agricultural areas are operated by rural farmers, and if they’re trained on the finest agricultural and fundamental practices/processes such as enhanced seeds; ranchers are able to capitalize on yields of miscellaneous crops to provide for their communities, their families, and themselves. The Altruism Society; targets rural populations with interventions to improve yields, revenues and nutrition practices to boost the nations means of feeding itself, and ultimately assist in feeding the rest of the world.

The Altruism Society’s agricultural development initiatives are funded in association with our international partners and networks in support of these interventions in economic development, nutrition, and risk management in over 25 countries around the world.

In regions overwhelmed by nutrition insecurity ascribed to reduced harvest yields, pest and disease outbreaks, and disadvantaged farming practices, The Altruism Society has trained thousands of lead ranchers in sustainable farming practices. As a result; 89% of our ranchers have seen an increase in revenue once seed fabrication was advanced with private sector support.

Our agricultural development initiative also educated 2500 maternal and community groups, 1200 dieticians/nutritionist, who reached 20,000 additional paternal and community groups  through public discussions focused on reducing distressingly high rates of chronically malnourished kids, families, and individuals.

GLOBAL HEALTH CARE INITIATIVE

Despite advanced improvements in health care in recent years; there are still a number of challenges that our global communities face in the 21rst century. Today; there are still over 1 billion people who lack access to proper health care systems. The Altruism Society is dedicated to alleviating pain and suffering due to the lack of health care that’s essential in the  maintenance and improvement of physical and mental health, especially through the provision of medical services. Every year; there are over 40 million deaths attributed to diseases such as Cardiovascular Disease, Cancer, Diabetes,  HIV/AIDS, Hypertension, Chronic Kidney Disease/Renal Failure, Heart Disease, Malaria, Tuberculosis, Polio, Measles, Pneumococcal diseases and etc… Over 8 million of these deaths consist of children under 5 years of age; and more people die from infectious diseases than people killed in the natural or man-made disasters, and wars that make international headlines.

One in five children don’t receive the most basic vaccines due to unreliable infrastructure, lacking health care systems, and the lack the man power and technology to ensure delivery. This is unacceptable; and we as an organization have developed a Global Health Initiative to provide medical care worldwide through mobile medical clinics that deliver free, state-of-the-art vision, dental, and medical services to children, families and individuals in urban, rural, and impoverished nations who don’t have access or the financial means to get medical treatment otherwise. Our organization specializes in transporting vaccine to low/middle income individuals, families, and impoverished countries in addition to providing refrigerated warehouses, facilities, and technology (alert systems) to monitor and protect every vaccine/pharmaceutical medicine on earth.  

Our ultimate goal is to alleviate pain and suffering by providing treatment and prevention services that cure diseases and disorders in addition to; educating communities on ways to prevent diseases and reduce health risk. The Altruism Society also conducts medical research that focuses on the causes and cures of diseases and developing new treatments to combat these ailments. Our organization also negotiates with global pharmaceutical and medical supply companies for lower priced drugs, vaccines, and equipment to combat diseases, and provide aid until these communities and/or countries can afford them.

EDUCATION INITIATIVE

EDUCATION: Provide advance education for youth and working adults in vocational and skilled-trades in addition to offering K-12 tutoring, and reducing the number of high school dropouts. Educate and promote environmental awareness including issues such as malnutrition and safe drinking water. Approximately 50 adults a month attend monthly classes to learn how to keep and balance a checkbook, how to budget, and how to plan for purchasing cost-effective and nutritious groceries. The Altruism Society has implemented GED, and English and Spanish as a Second Language classes.

YOUTH PROGRAMS: The Altruism Society provides youth education, ceramics, dance, art programs, athletic activities, a homework help program, youth summer jobs, and a leadership program. It is also home to the ACHIEVE youth leadership program, which serves 50 youth between the ages of 8 and 13

COMMUNITY RE-DEVELOPMENT

The Altruism Society is dedicated to urban and rural renewal concentrated on a particular district, corridor, county, city, community, or underdeveloped international village that has become neglected or blighted.  Our redevelopment efforts commonly center on decreasing crime, demolishing unsuitable buildings and dwellings, restoring historic features and structures, and creating new landscaping, housing and business opportunities mixed with expanded community services, resources, and transportation infrastructure. This is accomplished through strategic research, planning, and development that involves community members, city government, businesses investors, educational and healthcare institutions that assist our organization to:

  • Revitalize and improve conditions within local, national and international communities by obtaining land, distressed properties, and restoring them to productive use, diminish affliction, enhance property values, support community objectives and improve the quality of life for members of the community.

  • Promoting Community Enhancements

  • Reducing Crime and Promoting Safetty
