We often focus on what we are doing wrong. While it’s good to know what we’re doing wrong, it’s equally, if not more important, to know what we’re doing right. So with that, I’d like to give a shout out to Blood Water Mission for what they are doing right. Their mission is, “empowering communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS & water crises in Africa.” I love that rather than take an ethnocentric approach to “helping” solve issues, they harness the power of collective thought, understanding, and empowerment. Check out their video below to learn more about how they work.

The mission of Blood:Water is to empower communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crises in Africa, but perhaps you’ve wondered how exactly we accomplish this goal. We hope our new video, “How We Work,” will help you better visualize the strategy and values behind the efforts we employ.
