Small Gestures Can Make Lasting Changes

Support of Sarah Braden, the Peace Corps and a small village in Mozambique

 
Showing up to be a positive presence in the world is what inspires and drives our ScanCAD team and company. We bring this passion and hope not only through our mission and direct product offering, but also in the support of other individuals and organizations aligned in the goal of ultimately co-creating a better tomorrow. It is our belief that any action firmly rooted in the desire to make a positive difference — large or small — can create a powerful ripple outward.
 
ScanCAD has been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to contribute to the financial support of Sarah Braden in the Peace Corps for the last three years — offering financial backing to the people and projects with whom she is directly working. An inspiration of service and altruism, Sarah joined the Peace Corps and moved to a small village in Mozambique. ScanCAD was able to partner with Sarah and offer financial support to help a family build a new home (a sturdy concrete house to replace their stick and grass hut), as well as supply a small dress business (Stela’s) with the capital they need to produce more products, advertise and grow. Both of these projects have not only helped the people directly linked, but also the greater community.  
 
Our contribution in support of Sarah Braden is an example of how our company wishes to give back in the global community by focusing in areas where a micro contribution can provide a mega result. As with all of our charitable donations, 100% of this donation made it to the end result; nothing was lost in the process.

ScanCAD Gives Back

Extension of Pipe Borne Water to Adalekpoe Community

 

Adalekpoe is a small village in North Tongu District of Ghana’s Volta Region with a population of 270 people, all belonging to the Ewe tribe. The population are farmers, cassava and maize are the main crops. Mafi-Kumase, 7 km from Adalekpoe, is the closest place with facilities like electricity, telephone and shops. Maurizio Albani, a board member of AMURT Italy and ScanCAD employee, saw first hand the dire water situation at Adallekpoe. The women and girls have to trek twenty minutes to the nearest water source; the water was blackish and clearly unsafe. The Adalekpoe people requested assistance to connect them to the Mafi-Kumase water project. The community helped digging and covering 1.85 km of trench. The standpipe at Adalekpoe village was officially opened with a traditional ceremony. The headman poured libation and invoked the deities to bless and protect the village and the water project.

ScanCAD Supports AIDG

ScanCAD donated a ScanFAB Auxiliary system to Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group (AIDG) to help this wonderful organization. The system went to Guatemala to support a hydroelectric project. AIDG MISSION: " One in 3 of us, roughly 2 billion people don't have basic services such as electricity, sanitation and clean drinking water. Access to these services is essential to breaking the cycle of poverty in developing countries. The Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group (AIDG) helps individuals and communities get affordable and environmentally sound access to electricity, sanitation and clean water. Through a combination of business incubation, education, and outreach, we help people get technology that will better their health and improve their lives. " 

 

Common Tables

ScanCAD contributed to this organization that helps close the gap created mostly by ignorance between people of different religion, race and culture through education and group interaction. COMMON TABLES MISSION: " Common Tables offers the world an alternative to bias, bigotry, racism and religious intolerance. Using education and small group interaction, Common Tables lowers perceived barriers and promotes respect for and understanding of those individuals or cultures that are different from our own. "

 

Homeopathic Clinic In Kenya

ScanCAD proudly gives back a percentage of its revenue every year to help where needed. ScanCAD was able to completely fund a homeopathic clinic in Kenya. The Abha Light Health Clinic is located in the village of Makutano in the district of Machakos. The clinic is run by Danson Njoroge, a homeopathic doctor. Danson see about 50 patients a month. Due to poverty, many clients cannot pay fully and that causes some financial struggle for Danson. There are not many other health services available in that area since poverty keeps most private doctors away. Since the clinic opened last year with the assistance of ScanCAD International (USA), he has been able to establish it as a base of his outreach programs. He conducts 4 monthly mobile clinics in surrounding villages with about 20 patients at each. Those clinics are at Donyo village at Thika, Nyaani, Machakos and Miodoni, Kitui and Katagini, and Wote. ScanCAD hopes to be able to fund a project in the future to bring clean water to another village in Kenya. To learn more about Amurt or to make a donation, please go to www.amurt.net.
