Social Prophet Ventures: building capacity and co-creating sustainable solutions in low resource communities.
We are passionate about increasing access to health and wellness services for underserved populations. As a global community, we have a responsibility not only to ensure access to health for the most vulnerable, but to also guarantee local sustainability of any health care initiative.
Why we need your help:
Your donations will allow us to travel to Africa this summer to build upon previous work. We have been invited back to work with a local NGO in the villages of the Ekumfi district, Central Region of Ghana to use our experience and expertise to build capacity through experiential learning and co-create with local populations to develop sustainable solutions. One of the organizations we will be working with is Helpers Ghana Foundation.
