Mission: 

The aim of APureCares is to empower and improve the socio-economic well being of rural and urban people through productive self-help.  APureCares believes in strengthening people to find their own solutions to the problems they face. It strives to help the people create a new world transformed by an end to poverty and to help change the rules that keep people poor.

 

Summary of APureCares programs and current projects:

  1. Micro Loans:

APureCares is working on a program that offers micro loans to rural dwellers, co-operatives, organizations, NGO’s, etc.  The goal is that this would encourage them to seek individual self-sufficiency and would hopefully promote much needed participatory self-reliant development, which will ultimately increase the output and productivity of entire communities.

 

New Project:

Orlu Water Project:  APureCares is working with MM Brothers Company to provide water to rural villages from a new water borehole project, which has cost about US$36,000.00 so far and at completion estimated to cost about US$210,000.000. 

2.      Windows of our World Internet Centers:  Internet cafes & computer centers set up in remote villages /communities.  These centers serve as the villager’s window to the world outside them.  They make phone calls, use computers to surf the net, etc.   A pilot center is located in Orlu through collaboration with Callico Communication Center.

New Project:

In April, 2003, about (70) used computers were shipped to Imo State, Eastern Nigeria and APureCares is making arrangement to refurbish these and utilize them in setting up its Internet cafes.  New cafes are being set up in Umuahia, Abia State, Nigeria, Onitsha, Anambra State, Owerri, Imo State, Abakiliki, Ebony State and Asaba, Delta State.
