HELP OUR FIGHT AGAINST POVERTY
CHOICE’s ability to help rural communities fight devastating poverty is only as powerful as the number of people who give to our cause.
Most people are already thinking about giving to a meaningful organization for #GivingTuesday—with your help, we hope they'll give to CHOICE.

WE'RE ON OUR WAY TO OUR GOAL

Build a water cistern in Mexico to support 1 family, so they no longer must walk hours every day to access drinkable water.
Help 10 skilled artisans in Peru purchase their own equipment instead of having to rent, thus maximizing their efforts in economic development and financial freedom.

Be inspired by real lives changed by CHOICE Humanitarian:
ESTHER'S EXAMPLE OF EDUCATION
Esther did her National exams in Kanjaocha Primary School in 2014. CHOICE has been working to support Kanjaocha by providing adequate infrastructure to ensure a 100% transition of students to schools of higher learning.
In 2014, Esther was the only Kanjaocha Primary School student to go on to high school. Since then, Esther has gone on to pursue a Diploma in a University College in Nairobi.
CHOICE is committed to the value of education, and adequate school infrastructure plays a vital role in the performance of a student. Esther has set a great example for many other young schoolchildren in Kenya to follow.
PLANTING SEEDS OF HOPE
In the Angochagua Parish of Ecuador, CHOICE helped the community improve their irrigation system. With better conditions in the greenhouse, the production of baby vegetable plants has increased.
Last week, 300 elderly community members and their families from six surrounding communities were given different varieties of plants to implement in their gardens.
COMBATTING ANEMIA AND MALNUTRITION
CHOICE Humanitarian continues to work on the various approaches to fight against anemia and malnutrition, conditions that severely affect children throughout South America.
Recently in the Peruvian communities of Sincape, Casagrande, and Vichayal, CHOICE delivered chickens to women and their families. This project contributes towards greater nutrition and healthy eating while also boosting small-scale entrepreneurship.
KEEPING GIRLS IN SCHOOL
CHOICE Humanitarianin Nepal delivered newly-built latrines to Tanbe Basic School and Bhim Basic School of Gokulganga Rural Municipality in Ramechhap.
About 240 students attend these schools, 50% of which are girls. About 25% of these female students start menstruating between the ages of 10 and 11—without accessible and sanitary bathrooms, many girls simply drop out of school when they reach this age.
These latrines will provide a sanitary and hygienic environment so that overall attendance can increase for all students and especially girls.
Our purpose is to give people living in devastating poverty just one more choice or one more option. With the help of generous donors, dreams become a reality for these individuals and families.
