Our vision continues to improve the lives of individuals through education, nutrition, creative self-expression, increase awareness of global interconnectedness, provide stewardship of the earth's resources, and support children in need.
What we do to build communities…
From a holistic global approach, LiveGlobally creates substantial support for under resourced communities to become self sustaining. We build a foundation of trust by co-creating solutions unique to the core situations that are undermining growth for the people involved. By educating the children in a community new paradigms of hope and prosperity, strength and empowerment are seeded for long term growth and commitment to autonomy.
We work on projects focused on education, sustainability, and art. In collaboration with other organizations and local initiatives, we support communities in Nairobi, Kenya, Durham, NC, and Drake Bay, Costa Rica.
Our primary project is The Ingrid Education Centre, in the Mantopeni slums in Nairobi supporting 300 students and 12 teachers. Working towards self -sufficiency, we financed the school building and land, ensure teachers and staff wages, healthy food, clean water, sanitary pads, computers and internet.
In Durham, we developed a mindfulness yoga program in collaboration with MindBody Centering Yoga, a local trauma-sensitive curriculum, called “Happy Minds, Healthy Bodies” to empower individuals to be their ‘best selves’. We have implemented this individualized program at the Boys and Girls Club of Durham over the past 3 years, which incorporates movement, fitness, self expression, and creative writing.
