It has been a big challenge for the Saqil Group to be able to generate a good source of income for rural communities. It was especially difficult, because most of the people participating from the rural communities are mothers that need to take care of their children at the same time! We are happy to say that the WAKAMI EXPORT VALUE CHAIN has formed 17 rural companies, incorporating about 273 people to a new and much better source of income!
This has all been possible, because people and organizations from all over the world that saw the value and potential in our project are helping us. A great uplifting energy that we call the WAKAMI CONNECTION has been formed by all of those that have been involved in the dream. The incubation department has worked hard to develop rural businesses, with support from international cooperation –
What is next?
The idea for Wakami Villages was born in 2006. The past 5 years have been spent laying the foundation— generating a steady source of income for the rural communities. Now, Wakami Villages is finally becoming a reality! Wakami Villages is a platform and methodology— women with a source of income (from the Wakami Value Chain) have access to products and services that dramatically improve their quality of life and most importantly, transform them into agents of change for their families, communities and LAND!
When a woman has a source of income the Wakami Villages become a reality.
The Wakami Village Methodology— 4 areas of impact:
- Wakami Family: Quality nutrition and education are both implemented and monitored. Children are physically checked for nutrition every month based on their height and weight ratio. Education will be monitored by checking weekly school attendance. Outside organizations are getting involved to make an accurate and reliable program.
- Wakami Home: Products like water filters, stoves, solar energy kits and rain water harvesting units are presented to women, showcasing the benefits, both for the home and the environment.
and: Women will start organic gardens to produce fresh, healthy food. They will also start to manage solid waste in their communities.
ommunity: Women will create recreational parks in their communities and participate in local decision making spaces!
This methodology is made possible from alliances with organizations that provide these kinds of services for people in rural communities all over the globe that want to create a BEAUTIFUL WORLD, where the SUN SHINES FOR EVERYONE!!!
