Our Philosophy<br />“Give a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you’ll feed him for a lifetime.”<br />“The poor do not need handouts.They need a hand up.”<br />
Sustainable development requires dynamic and comprehensive solutions in order to create the opportunity for the poor to break out the cycle of poverty.<br />Our Methodology<br /><ul><li>Accompany donations with capacity-building
Provide necessary awareness-building to the poor in matters relating to health, nutrition, education, and work.
Distribute aid materials in a concentrated rather than disperse way to pre-selected communities.
Consolidate and coordinate all the different departments of ANF and direct their work to meet the diverse needs of whole communities. </li></li></ul><li>Our Methodology<br />Millennium Communities<br />TransformingNicaragua – Community by Community<br />In short, the Millennium Communities in Nicaragua begin as extremely impoverished rural communities and will be aided with integral development solutions in conjunction with the United Nations, municipal governments on and multinational organizations.Objectives<br />Promote sustainable development towards the Millennium Development Goals – one community at a time. <br />Empower the communities through technical training, technology transfers, and capacity-building from local governments and international and national NGOs.<br />Collaborate with the public and private sector, innovative organizations, universities, experts, and the international donor community to continually improve and coordinate development strategies. <br />Transform subsistence communities into small-scale entrepreneurial communities and promote the diversification of economic activities. <br />
