Mission Statement

We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization providing health and development assistance to under-served people living in some of the world’s poorest places. We currently operate in five locations - Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Peru, Mongolia, and now on the Navajo nation in Chinle, Arizona. Typically, we begin with a focus on health care and then turn to projects related to agriculture, clean water, education, and economic development. We build partnerships with local and regional government and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to develop and implement long-term solutions. Our ultimate goal is to make communities self-sustainable and self-reliant.

Description

The Denan Project is a nonprofit, grassroots organization whose volunteer members secure the necessary resources to provide free medical care, agricultural training, education, and other critical services to isolated and impoverished communities around the world. Because we are entirely volunteer-run, we are able to give nearly 100% of the funds we raise directly to our projects. In order to best ensure lasting success, we make long-term commitments to each of our project sites, usually aiming to work between 15 and 20 years in each location. We also work closely with on-the-ground partners and experts, including local and regional government and non-governmental organizations. Importantly, we personally make frequent visits to each of our locations, allowing us to: assess the results of our involvement; consult with staff, partners, and the people of the community; and confirm use of funds and timely progress. These trips are undertaken by our Board Members and volunteers - all of whom pay their own way and receive no reimbursement for their efforts.

We are passionate about making a real difference for the people in the communities in which we work. Not just today, but for the long-term.
