The Maia Project: Bringing Clean Water to the Children of Palestine

This project began when the Student Parliament at the UN Boys School in Bureij Refugee Camp, Gaza were given the opportunity to choose one thing they most wanted for their school: They chose to have clean drinking water. MECA's partner in Gaza heard about this vote and, after meeting with representatives from the school and the Student Parliament, came to MECA to see if we could respond to the children’s request for drinking water. MECA provided the funds to build a water purification and desalination unit for the school in 2007.

MECA is working in partnership with community organizations in Gaza to build water purification and desalination units in schools throughout the Gaza Strip.

Microcredit PLUS education for women in poverty

To complement the microcredit component that DiscoverHope funds, we seek to offer approximately 300 educational trainings each year to maximize women's entrepreneurial, financial, and personal goals. In 2011, we doubled in size! We now have 21 village banks serving 216 families, and we provided 725 classes, workshops and individual coaching sessions, far surpassing our original goal of 300. All while maintaining our unprecedented 100% loan payback rate. This project would continue to provide a range of trainings to these women over the course of the year that would be organized by our on-site program manager, indigenous staff and teachers. Trainings are always determined based on the requests and needs of loan recipients because we work from the roots up, beginning with the dreams and desires of the women we serve: historically these trainings include business, finance, literacy, health ed., computer, artisan, culinary and husbandry skills development. DiscoverHope is able to provide these trainings to village banks located both centrally within the city of Cajamarca at our HOPEHouse, a women's development center, as well as to the village banks spread out in the rural communities where transportation is limited or not feasible.
