So much degradation has happened to our precious existing water supplies that it’s important to the Ophora family that we commit both time and money to supporting a service project that is actively involved in healing the waters of the world. We are honored to use Ophora’s success to contribute to the good works of the March to the Top Foundation humanitarian efforts.
The goal of the March to the Top Foundation is to help underprivileged people of Africa by providing support in health care, education and conservation.
HIV/AIDs and Tuberculosis (TB) are rampant throughout Africa, and the epidemic is particularly gruesome in the slums of Kibera, Mathare and the Athi River. While HIV/AIDs and Tuberculosis can be well managed in America, where people living with these diseases can often live long and fulfilling lives, lack of health care resources and taboos surrounding these diseases often render the infections fatal. The high morbidity and mortality associated with both HIV/AIDS and TB in Africa divides families and leaves children abandoned or orphaned. In addition to the need for better health care resources to treat these diseases, there is an overwhelming need for education about transmission and prevention of infection.
The typical level of education within Sub Saharan Africa is the third grade. For many, this low level of education is due to unaffordable schooling and/or poor accessibility, and is not a reflection of the populations desire for education or ambitions. Education is key to empowering individuals, strengthening communities and economies.
Tourism, specifically tourism of national parks and reserves, accounts for a large portion of the economic product in both Kenya and Tanzania. If long term conservation plans and measures are not enacted, the economies of these countries will have no long term sustainable viability. Wildlife and ecologic conservation is not only important for the economy, but, also for preserving these natural resources for future generations.
It is a horrifying fact that the lack of access to clean water is the world’s number one killer of children: ahead of wars, earthquakes, malaria, HIV-AIDS and TB combined. To date The March to the Top Foundation has completed hundreds of projects and transformed thousands of lives around the globe.
