ALERT: Social Development

Social Development

"Change in the societies at the very bottom must come predominantly from within; we cannot impose it on them." Paul Collier

Lions exist alongside some of the poorest people in the world.  Poverty and food insecurity create a reliance on natural resources that places people in direct competition with wildlife. Assisting these communities to develop in a sustainable way is therefore another vital component in our responsible development approach. 

Projects seek to directly address the variety of needs of our local communities; especially vulnerable people groups such as orphans, the elderly, and those living with HIV / AIDS.

We are currently working in the following areas, and are seeking to greatly enhance this area of our work:

  • Frontline Healthcare: ALERT is currently supporting four healthcare facilities serving a catchment of over 120,000 people.
  • Community agriculture programs to enhance food security and reduce reliance on natural resources
  • Community care projects assist several vulnerable groups
