Long term sustainable development in Africa and South America is still of crucial importance; Recycle for Change uses proceeds from the sale of used clothing to support other non-profit organizations running programs that enable young people to take part in sustainable development work and take up the fight against extreme poverty.
Our partners offer different programs for people who want to actively take part in the fight against poverty. These programs are making a real difference in the lives of people living in poverty worldwide. They are aimed at building cooperation across cultures, languages, and borders and are constantly challenging its volunteers to think and act outside the box in an effort to create a more just and sustainable world for all.
“Fighting With The Poor”
an 18 months long activist program focused on gaining a thorough first-hand understanding of the causes and effects of poverty and taking concrete actions in the USA and abroad in a developing nation. Through our donations to One World Center and Richmond Vale Academy, Recycle for Change is standing by its commitment to provide support to the important work being done together with many other government agencies and international NGO’s like Humana People to People.
We recognize the importance of continuing the efforts to create development in some of the poorest regions of the world. One World Center and Richmond Vale Academy have both trained and placed hundreds of volunteers in a number of development projects in Sub-Saharan Africa and South America. Projects focused on HIV/AIDS Education, food and water security, sanitation, teacher training and heath education where the volunteers work together with the community in an effort to empower them to create sustainable solutions for their lives.
