A Vision within Reach

Creating a Permanent Solution to Poverty through Education, Resource Independence and Technology Empowerment. 

EcoVida believes that humanity is at a tipping point, where new, advanced small-scale systems can relieve the challenges which under-resourced populations are experiencing globally.

EcoVida’s objective is to raise the quality of life for our communities by bringing previously unknown and advanced technologies to them that result in new opportunities for economic, social and personal development. We call our process of implementation and measured outcomes The EcoVida Ideal; a unique blend of innovative, frugal and capacity building approaches and initiatives (see diagram on right).

OUR PROJECTS

EcoVida’s Ideal vision is to empower every individual and family in our selected communities by providing them with the personal advantages which clean water, sufficient energy, nutritious food and good health can impart. We deliver our services through education targeted at attaining new levels of productivity, self-sufficiency and personal agency.

Creating quality of life 

Let's do this together

For us, poverty is a condition defined only by a lack of basic knowledge and resources; there are always cost-effective solutions to the challenge of creating a quality, meaningful life of every person and community.

Education

Modern telecommunications open the potential to bring education at all levels to disadvantaged communities. Our program creates an interactive learning experience for basic skills allowing students to progress according to their interest, capability and motivation. Vocational training will be offered to meet specific targeted job opportunities and learning needs that support community productivity and social improvement

Health

ECOVIDA believes that every community and every individual should support the available health care services by maximizing whatever can be done to keep the individual healthy through prevention, sanitation, cleanliness, good nutrition and a healthy life style. In disadvantaged communities, much of the work of health services can be taken over by trained community health visitors, members of the same community who assist with simple medical teaching tasks.

Housing

The World Bank recommendation is a cap on 30% of the main bread-winner basic income as the amount to be spent on housing. ECOVIDA provides each community with the training it needs to maintain its homes and condominiums as well as post-occupancy support in the form of a risk management system, all with the aim of keeping the home-owner safely and securely in his property.

Agriculture

Simple technologies that offer access to clean water, capturing rain water or recycling grey water, can make an immediate difference to the lives of subsistence farmers. ECOVIDA provides communities with proven and inexpensive technologies that increase agriculture output, encourage the better storage of food supplies, which avoid wastage and spoilage and allow the small producer to market his products at market rates.
