IYAU is a non-profit organization that promotes empowerment of the most poor, marginalised, and vulnerable people for sustainable change. IYAU mission is to be a Local NGO that is committed to accessing opportunities to better the lives of the most poor, marginalised, and vulnerable people. IYAU model can be described as providing a local solution to a global problem. Our projects are sustainable community based development initiatives which are community demand driven, utilize local materials, local labor and ingenuity and ownership is transferred to the communities upon completion. More importantly, we focus on optimizing sustainability of our projects by forming long-lasting, collaborative relationships with communities. We do not initiate or build projects in isolation. Instead we work with communities to co-create programs that are appropriate for them and the environment in which they live.
We believe sustainable development and transformation are essential to ensuring the creation of well-founded initiatives that empower the most poor, marginalised, and vulnerable people to change thier lives and communities. We work to empower them with the tools and knowledge they need that will allow them to overcome the many challenges they face and focus on creating innovative sustainable businesses and sustainable community based driven development initiatives. It's such well-founded initiatives that create jobs, improve people's livelihoods, and, in turn, ensure a lasting more prosperous society. As the widely-repeated adage has taught us, IYAU will help provide the hook, or access to it, that then empowers and allows the poeple to fish for themselves.
IYAU was founded on the premise that it's critical to elevate the most poor, marginalised, and vulnerable people's needs and ambitions to take responsibility for their communities. All of the organizations work aims to contribute to a society that supports and embraces the self-assurance of the poor, marginalised, vulnerable and thier communities.
