Social Development

The social development program is dedicated to building healthy, prosperous communities where children, youth, and adults have hope and opportunities, and where a safety net is in place to ensure a good life for all.

  • We promote self-reliance, self-sufficiency, individual responsibility
  • We seek to embody and promote compassion, a gift we all carry and that our Ayuuk (traditional laws) tell us must direct all our relationships

We achieve this vision by developing and running programs that

  • Directly assist people and families in need
  • Uphold and pass on our traditions
  • Support education
  • Build community connection
  • Increase workplace and life skills
  • Enhance mental and physical health
