Poverty, Natural disasters and humanitarian crisis have devastating effects on communities. The risk to human life and the destruction of community foundations that, in many cases, take generations to establish, cause unimaginable turmoil and stress on individuals and whole
In collaboration with in-country partners, Misfit Aid aims to empower these communities with resources and support that aid restoration and re-development. Impacted communities often require long-term development programs that are focused on restoring or developing the community to a place where it functions effectively, successfully services the community and meets the needs of local residents. Misfit Aid aims to come along side in-country partners to assist in the delivery of activities that support the development of communities and improve the lives of its residents.
Due to the nature of our support, practical assistance will typically occur some months following the initial and immediate response period and, once the long- term development needs are clear and evident. We have established a robust process to develop an immediate action plan following a disaster or humanitarian crisis that can be mobilized and coordinated. This action plan is a multi-pronged approach that involves working hand-in-hand with local communities; providing mentoring programs and training that equips local to implement re-development activitiesthemselves.
Misfit Aid believes that empowerment - enabling the community to continue without our assistance over the long-term - is the best way forward.
