Total charitable giving from the USA alone in 2009 was $303 billion.
According to the non profit organization Villages of Hope, the typical village (with 90 households, 500 people and 5 agricultural groups of 25 members each) needs $8,213 to stimulate the local economy, invest in sustainable farming and save them from poverty and hunger.
Usually large agencies rely on information provided from local officials who are not always accurate and honest.
Poverty and vulnerability of local people are used as a tool by many local authorities to attract funders and donors. High corruption in the local level prevents effectiveness and success of many initiatives.
Paradoxically, thousands of project evaluation reports show tremendous successes of the programs and projects while local communities continue to experience extreme poverty and hunger.
Significant financial sources from charity organizations, international agencies and governments are spent year by year to fight world poverty and hunger but effectiveness of the action is still under question.
We are still unable to reduce poverty in the world.
Ambassadors will gather information case-by-case and will develop priorities for the development of their adopted villages.
After recognition and prioritization of the local problems, Ambassadors will move forward with our organization to search for funds by working closely with private funders as well as international agencies and organizations.
After returning in the USA Ambassadors will keep monitoring the progress and effectiveness of the proposed initiatives.
They will use their connection, information and skills to fundraise for particular micro projects such as sustainable agriculture training, prevention of HIV/AIDS, basic literacy, nutritional assistance, and others depending on the needs of the local village.
Our organization will assist Community Ambassadors to create their network to share experiences, connections and information.
For fundraising purposes, we will initiate Community Sponsorship Campaigns and will use Community Ambassadors as a unique resource to encourage Americans to sign up for monthly donations to support community development in Africa and Asia.
