Proyecto 1 aims to treat and prevent illness and malnutrition by providing quality health services and facilities to those vulnerable to the effects of extreme poverty, to promote wellness and healing through education, and to elevate the quality of living for those who lack access to medical services and higher education.
We believe that change starts with one person, one idea, one action. Our dream is to eliminate malnutrition and to improve health and education by raising up a generation that inspires hope and change through example.
The following Statement of Values guides our actions and plans.
Proyecto 1 welcomes anyone called to help the poor, and we serve those living in poverty without regard to religion. Although our vision is based on Christian principles, we honor all beliefs that lead people to health, happiness, and enlightenment. We recognize that all people, whatever they believe, are equal and deserve respect. We believe people of all faiths can unite through service, and encourage everyone to celebrate their unique spirituality. We deeply respect those we serve, and their freedom to develop their own spirituality. We strive to learn from the deep faith they hvae developed over a lifetime of confronting hardships, in order to grow together in our hope for a better tomorrow.
