Red Earth Projects was set up by our sister and partner company Financial Academic with the sole aim of giving back to the Community in particularly those Countries and Communities much less fortunate than ourselves - Africa.
Red Earth Projects is an on-going Project set up to address African development and policy issues by working in partnership with African people to build sustainable, healthy and productive communities in some of the most impoverished areas in Africa.
How Do We Do This?
Over the next 15 years we aim to work alongside credible Charities such as BuildAfrica, Waterforafrica, Africare and Schoolsforafrica to deliver life changing projects including new schools, Health clinics, Farms, Bore holes, Solar powered Irrigation Systems and homes. Our main means of achieving this are to raise funds through the power of Social Media harnessing its global reach through Social Media channels such as Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram - although other ways will be explored we strongly believe that Social Media has no borders and the capabilities to extend its reach far outweigh any other means.
Fact - Did You Know that at a 2001 African Union (AU) meeting in Abuja, Nigeria, African countries agreed to allocate 15% of their budgets to healthcare. To date, only six countries (Botswana, Burkina Faso, Malawi, Niger, Rwanda and Zambia) have met this commitment. Unfortunately a large majority of Government allocated funds don't make it to the most needed African Communities for whatever reason - Red Earth Projects aim to raise, Monitor and distribute funds equally ensuring much need Projects are completed either by ourselves or our Partners.
Although it seems incredible in this day and age to know that large parts of Africa are still without fresh water, Food and shelter unfortunately they are and they always will be if we do not arm the local Communities with basic craft and life skills, It is for this very reason that when Red Earth Projects take on these developments we aim to get local African people involved in as many aspects of the projects as possible such as basic bricklaying, Building, Carpentry and Plumbing thus empowering them and giving them the confidence and life skills to make a difference in their Communities.
We don't just plan to raise vital funds for these much needed facilities - We plan to go out to Africa and build them ourselves this way we know we are truly making an impact at grassroots level.
We know we cannot change the world alone but if we can rest easy in our beds at night knowing we have provided a safe means of Water free from parasites or empowered a young child through means of building a school enabling them with a chance of an education then we believe it's worth it.
Every donation no matter how great or small will make a significant impact and be much appreciated. There will also be opportunities for Individuals and Business to get involved with us along the way from Online Fundraising to tradesmen and women volunteering on our projects in the field.
