AFRICAN SOLUTIONS TO AFRICAN PROBLEMS

POST BY: RUSH

In 2012, Fondation RUSH sponsored African Solutions to African Problems (“ASAP”), a South African based organisation which supports grassroots organisation of women running drop in centres for children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS.

ASAP believes in the value of home-grown solutions and that sustainable development begins with people and the ownership and realization of their ideas. Any change and intervention must stand in organic relationship to what the people on the ground are already doing.

By encouraging them to develop their own models of care, in conjunction with the services that ASAP provides in the drop-in centres, these organizations and their networks of women are able to scale up and replicate to feed, clothe and educate children.
