WHAT WE DO

BIOTISHO EISHOI™ (Reproductive Health)

ERAMATATA OLMANYARA™ (‘ENVIRONMENT MANAGEMENT’)
Climate change threatens the livelihoods and well-being of all people and societies. Yet the impacts of climate change are likely to be worse for the poor and marginalized, who lack the resources to effectively adapt as droughts, floods, and other concerns take effect.
