Supporting Education

Around the world more than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our goal with RAWCS projects is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.

Our RAWCS projects aim to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. We support education for all children and literacy for children and adults.

Providing Clean water, Sanitation and Hygiene

When people have access to clean water and sanitation, waterborne diseases decrease, children stay healthier and attend school more regularly, and mothers can spend less time carrying water and more time helping their families.

RAWCS projects and volunteers mobilize resources, form partnerships, and invest in infrastructure and training that yield long-term change.

Saving Mothers and Children

We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.

RAWCS projects provide education, immunizations, birth kits, and mobile health clinics. Women are taught how to prevent disease transmission, how to breast-feed, how to protect themselves and their children from disease and how to provide more nutritional food for their children and families.

Fighting Disease

Disease results in misery, pain, and poverty for millions of people worldwide. That’s why treating and preventing disease is so important to us.

RAWCS sets up temporary clinics and training facilities in underserved communities struggling with outbreaks and health care access. We design and build infrastructure that allows doctors, patients, and governments to work together.

Our members combat diseases like malaria, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and polio. We also focus on health education and bringing people routine hearing, vision, and dental care
