Our Area of Work
Sub-Saharan Africa has been on the receiving end of several governmental and non-governmental aid since the emergence of colonialism in the late eighteenth to early nineteenth century. Today, the reality is that these communities ravaged by poverty, hunger, civil wars, and in recent times, climatic disturbances, communal/ ethno-religious crisis, insurgency and terrorism, still suffer daily from lack of basic amenities and a generally poor standard of living.
Our initiative seeks to provide sustainable relief by engaging in community-based projects that will help provide better sanitary conditions, improved safe/clean drinking water, better health care systems/facilities, and education, which is the bedrock of development.
Human resources (not capital or income, nor material resources) constitute the ultimate basis for the wealth of nations. Capital and natural resources are passive factors of production. Human beings are the active agents that accumulate capital, exploit natural resources, build social, economic and political organizations and move forward National development. Clearly, for a country that refuses to develop her skills and knowledge, her National economy will be unable to develop anything else.
-Prof. Frederick Harris Harbison (1973)
In view of this, RavenBrooks International offers initiatives for educational development, not only in the provision of school facilities, equipment and materials, but also in training and staff development, and generally organizing programs that inspire confidence in educational section as this is a tool for national development.
The future of the Nigerian economy lies mainly in the private sector, which is principally influenced by the growth of MSMEs. Our role in this area is to serve as enablers by ensuring that the right systems are in place for Micro, Small and Medium-Scale Enterprises (MSMEs) to gain the needed capital [human and material] and financial investment plans. We hope to, within this body of work, drive, incubate, monitor and mentor small businesses, until they become industrial giants.
TRAININGS AND CIVIC DEVELOPMENT
Another integral part of our work is training and civic development; equipping young individuals with skills: vocational, entrepreneurial and civic skills, as this is the way to go in building the finest stalwarts to pilot leading economies of the future into sustainable development.
Our SDG's Goals
Our work with the SDGs seeks to provide relief in the following areas. At RavenBrooks International we believe that sustainable development is achievable, hence we emphasize actionable results through properly planned projects and right partnerships that would lead to a future generation of individuals who can sustain themselves and are relevant in their communities.
