POSITIVE PROJECTS 

If we mapped the vital breakthroughs that have fundamentally shaped the survival and progress of humanity to date and then traced the origins of those behind them, no single country, race, gender, religion or other demographic could claim credit.  We are all benefiting from what different people everywhere are doing ... and so we should!   We are global citizens.  By exploiting our global strength and collective knowledge, we can easily tackle the challenges crippling development in pockets of the world, by sharing and replicating the many solutions out there that already exist.

Positive Projects are designed to calatyse collaboration by creating opportunities for sustainable solutions to be formulated with local communities.  They leverage innovations and skills that charities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and individuals can contribute, rather than trying to start from scratch.  ANYONE can bring ANYTHING to the table to help! Choose from the current projects of suggest one of your own and we'll do what we can to help you get it off the ground!  With the interconnected and interdependent nature of our world, the global is not ‘out there’; it is part of our everyday lives, as we are linked to others on every continent (ideas-forum.org.uk).  Take the Ebola crisis. It took one flight for that problem to become global.  

Most charities focus on one area e.g. water, & will go to a location, sink boreholes, maybe some toilets, & then move on. Understandable, because no-one can do everything.  The thing is, where's the nearest school in relation to water supply?  Who is trained in maintaining the equipment and where have the materials come from?  Other charities focus on money for school fees but not on food or the opportunities that come after school.  Charities focusing on school fees may have low attendance due to hungry kids not being able to walk to distance to school, or poor results due to inability to concentrate.  The plan is to bring all the 'suppliers' together to deliver a comprehensive, sustainable model which encourages independence and self reliance. By tackling issues in ANY part of the world, the benefit is felt by us all.  For example, enabling children in Africa to go to school opens the window of possibility for the person who finds a cure to Cancer to get the chance to do that.
 

Priority areas

Taken from the Strategic Development Goals, projects focus on 10 big areas: Food, Water, Sanitation, Healthcare (especially maternal), Education, Employment & Enterprise (including entrepreneurship), Electricity, Connectivity, Opportunity and Accommodation.

 If properly packaged and marketed, African art could play an important role in creating a niche for African societies in the emerging global economic system.

Cultural revival can empower African people to take their place not just on the cultural map of the world but in transforming their societies into viable participants in the global economy.  

Among many other things, {he}ART of Africa showcases some of the immense talent in Africa and creates a (new) profitable route for people to earn a living using skills & resources readily available to them.  

 

Creativity is free; we plan to position art as a profession and support artists so they can succeed by pursuing it.

The image and understanding that people have of Africa is usually confined to negative stereotypes because of propaganda. In a work environment, it can influence assumptions about your education, your ability, the acceptable ways to treat you, your style (the old assertive vs. aggressive issue), your expectations as far as salary and so much more.  Ralph Sockman said "In overcoming prejudice, working together is even more effective than talking together".

 

Sole to Soul enables professionals from different organisations to do just that over 12 weeks.

Ukama Holdings trains and empowers micro enterprises.  For the past 2 years, they have run a feeding scheme for children in Vrygrond, South Africa. They prepare home cooked, nutritious food every single day for almost 140 children. The difference in the health and wellbeing of these kids has been remarkable.  

 

In December 2016, Ukama committed to feeding another 42 children all under 4 years old at a day care facility. Their main meal was made from 12 packets of instant noodles hence intervention from Ukama.  

Positive Afritude is VERY proud to be funding 12 months of feeding for these 42 children.
