What would YOUR life look like... if you didn’t have steady access to the 4 basic human needs – Food, Clean Water, Clean Air and Shelter?
How would you survive?
This is the question that millions of people around the world find themselves having to answer on a daily basis.
Now, imagine experiencing all of this while 9 months pregnant and lacking access to standard medical care for delivery.
What would you expect your birthing process to feel like?
The journey would be quite painful on many levels. Besides the obvious pains of birth, you will also experience the pain of many other dilemmas to come.
Due to your lack of proper medical care during the pregnancy, there is a higher risk of you or the child not surviving. And if you do, what would be your next option in life? What is your expectation for your newborn child growing up in this condition? Would you even have the courage to dream of a better future for you or your child? And if you do, how far do you expect them to go in life?
Sometimes the greatest expectation a mother can have for their child is to simply stay alive – no matter what the condition.
Now imagine having or choosing to give that child away to an orphanage due to the overwhelming pressure of poverty?
As an outsider looking in, do you think this would be a great solution to solving this parent’s plight of systemic intergenerational poverty?
Sometimes, the solution is not as simple as we think.
These series of questions are designed to help the mind remember that quality of life is a valuable commodity, that is oftentimes under-appreciated.
Here's how Sustainability becomes the ULTIMATE solution....
By definition, SUSTAINABILITY means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Ex. Plant seeds today for a forest of trees tomorrow...

OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
"We are a Sustainable "Legacy" Foundation that provides Sustainable Solutions!"
The CSP Foundation is committed to creating positive solutions that last for generations; just as our founder originally intended. These solutions address the root cause of poverty. We believe that Systemic Poverty Requires a Systemic Sustainable Solution. Our approach requires ACTIVE COMMUNITY-BASED involvement. We provide access to the necessary resources and tools to fulfill the goal of achieving 100% future sustainability.
EDUCATION | SUSTAINABILITY | HEALTH
Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. That's why it's located in the center of our 3 golden hearts in our logos. Education & Health are our Top 2 Sustainable Initiatives. We are in 100% agreement & alignment with the UN's 17 SDG's (Sustainable Development Goals).
From inception to implementation; 100% of our programs & initiatives are initially designed with the element of sustainability in mind!
This is the #1 Goal we seek to tackle through all of our actions.
Health is One of our Top 2 Initiatives. We have annual Community Health Day to provide 1 FREE annual physical to community members.
Education is One of our Top 2 Initiatives. Our Centers of Excellence are specifically designed to provide educational & technical training for the children and adults in the rural communities that we serve.
We proportionately empower women by providing sustainable work opportunities through the hospitals and Center of Excellence.
We raise awareness about the issues of water accessibility and sanitary conditions. Our hospital cleaning initiative is designed to ensure that the toilet facilities are properly sanitized to prevent run off from contaminating the local people, crop and water supply. We also have a water purifying method program in the hospital and town wells.
We have future initiatives that requires the installation of solar lighting systems in our Centers of Excellence. These systems will be used to power the technology that we plan to implement in our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) programs.
We consistently provide business growth opportunities through our sustainability grants initiatives.
By providing transportation services, we have enabled the local community chief to advocate for technological and infrastructure development in their rural communities. These advancements have been approved and are now being implemented in the villages we impact. (Cell phone towers and Road construction projects.) We also heavily utilize our STEM program to educate our students in the rural areas about technology. Bringing them one step closer to realizing their dreams of becoming future engineers in their countries. Planting the seeds today for tomorrows harvest.
We strive daily to address and correct injustices in the societies that receive our support. We have a firm ZERO TOLERANCE policy for inequality in our organization.
The purpose of our organization is to build and develop sustainable cities & communities by constructing sustainable Centers of Excellence.
Our future sustainable initiatives include teaching & implementing Minimal to Zero Waste Farming Methods and Safe Community Waste Elimination & Recycling Practices.
We consistently raise awareness about practices that are environmentally/eco-friendly. Topics as simple as recycling or limiting the use of certain potentially hazardous products preserve the environment.
We work diligently to teach communities the value of keeping their communities clean. This means keeping trash out of local rivers to preserve the underwater eco-system long-term.
Our future initiatives include planting trees to help in reversing the effects of deforestation.
We greatly value and commit to establishing harmonious community relationships in every village we encounter.
We believe in the power of unity. We partner with local hospitals, organizations and communities to facilitate our mission and ultimately accomplishing the 17SDG's.
