With a Subscription Business Model as its organizing principle, HNP intends to create Owners out of Subscribers living in some of the most devastating circumstances on the planet. Through a One-time-only capitalization financed by philanthropic donations, HNP plans to supply needy communities anywhere with fully functional turn-key operations in the form of a donated, wholly self-sustaining Town Center, independent of any infrastructure, capable of providing its subscribers with clean water, showers and lavatories through innovative Clean Technology, creating its own energy and water source, and a built-in Waste water system. Further incorporating the combinations of Adult Learning with Access to Credit/Savings, Access to the Web, and Access to Networks of business and higher education will provide the community with powerful tools toward their own Self-Sustainability and independence.HNP believes communities anywhere can pay for their own basic services, provided they don’t need to pay for the capitalization cost of building utilities.
