Developing Technologies

Developing Technologies (DT) addresses chronic poverty in developing countries by creating change that lasts. The need is great. Annually, over 3 million children under five die from water-related diseases (one child every ten seconds) and over 500,000 women die in pregnancy and childbirth. Most of these deaths are easily preventable.

DT is addressing these problems through the design, development and free transfer of technology that is appropriate to poor communities needs. DT?s focus is on sustainable development so communities are able to help themselves. DT provides technology that is affordable and trains local groups in its use, maintenance and manufacture. This also has the desired effect of stimulating the local economy. Many developing countries experience similar problems so DT?s long-term aim is to provide help as widely as possible. DT works on a range of projects such as providing clean water, accessible transport for the sick and technology to increase food production.

Here?s one example. In Sierra Leone 26.7% of children die before reaching five, largely because of drinking dirty water. DT has developed well-drilling technology which is affordable and capable of drilling wells off-road. It has already been tested and used to provide safe water and a local NGO has been trained to install wells. DT?s aim is to provide clean water across Sierra Leone and in other countries where needed.

By supporting DT you will help save lives and create change that lasts.

Send a Cow helps African farmers grow enough food to feed their families, sell their produce and develop small businesses that last.

As a result, families are happier and healthier, children are educated, homes are improved.

In turn, these families then pass on young livestock, seeds or training to others. And so on. And so on. This ?pass on? principle not only builds stronger communities, it allows us to help even more people to develop skills, confidence and self respect.

The ?can do will do? attitude of Send a Cow is born out of our faming roots and our Christian faith. Working hand in hand with African farmers for over 20 years, we prove that farming in Africa works.

Survival International

"Survival helps tribal peoples to defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.

Founded in 1969 in response to the secret genocide of Amazonian Indians, Survival is the only international organization supporting tribal peoples worldwide. We do not accept funding from any national government.

Today, Survival has supporters in 82 countries. We work for tribal peoples? rights in three complementary ways: education, advocacy and campaigns. We also offer tribal people themselves a platform to address the world. We work closely with local indigenous organizations, and focus on tribal peoples who have the most to lose, usually those most recently in contact with the outside world.

We believe that public opinion is the most effective force for change. Its power will make it harder, and eventually impossible, for governments and companies to oppress tribal peoples.

Each year, VETAID improves the lives of over a million people.
