EDUCATION

A school session in rural Ghana is conducted under the shade of a large tree in place of a schoolhouse. A young student cannot attend school in rural Sierra Leone because she cannot afford the school uniforms. In Jamaica, a slum school struggles to fund another year of alternative education for street children in need.


“The human mind is our fundamental resource,” John F. Kennedy famously said. As rural and low-resource communities grow and expand their own development potential, SHGO actively supports education as a key tenant of community sustainability and local empowerment.

HEALTH

Sierra Leone has some of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the world, with 1 in 8 women perishing in childbirth. SHGO’s partner community in Guatemala does not even have one healthcare professional in its midst. In Haiti, there linger health issues from the 2010 earthquake with nowhere to turn for proper care.


Although health is a basic human right, many in low-resource settings suffer a burden of preventable ailments and lack adequate health services due to issues of affordability; access; medical facilities, materials and providers; and cultural barriers. Through international partnerships for health and healthcare, SHGO advocates for ‘healthcare for all’ through supporting clinics, healthcare providers, training and outreach, education and community promotion.
