IN DEPTH LOOK

>> At NSI, we work to break the dependency model that has been a part of aid initiatives for a long time. We prioritize the empowerment of the communities in which we work, and strive to employ sustainable low input, high output models in our field activities. To these ends, the education of women and children, particularly girls and systems of stable health and food resources are our primary focus.

 

TRANSPARENCY
