Humble Projects

 

The global group of health and development professionals at Humble Smile:

IDENTIFY HEALTH ISSUES THAT THREATEN PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT AS OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPACT;

DESIGN APPROPRIATE SUSTAINABLE INTERVENTIONS TOGETHER WITH THE COMMUNITY;

FORGE COLLABORATIONS FOR INTEGRATIVE COMPLIANT IMPLEMENTATION AND LIFE-CHANGING OUTCOMES;

EVALUATE, TWEAK, SCALE-UP AND SHARE THE MODELS WITH OTHERS.

WHY?

Well you may have noticed we are all in a bit of a global crisis, which as the United Nations put it…

 

HUMAN WELL-BEING LIES IN PROTECTING THE HEALTH OF THE PLANET.

GLOBAL WARMING IS ON TRACK TO INCREASE BY 3°C THIS CENTURY..

WOMEN REPRESENT 80 PER CENT OF THOSE DISPLACED BY CLIMATE DISRUPTION..

POLLUTION-RELATED DISEASES ARE PREMATURELY KILLING NINE MILLION PEOPLE ANNUALLY..

POLLUTED WATER KILLS 1.8 MILLION, PREDOMINANTLY CHILDREN…

1.3 BILLION PEOPLE REMAIN POOR…

700 MILLION HUNGRY…

LOW-LYING ISLANDS WILL RUN OUT OF FRESH WATER AND THEN RUN OUT OF LAND.. REEFS WILL DIE OFF…

OVER A MILLION PLANT AND ANIMAL SPECIES RISK EXTINCTION…  

 WE NEED TO INTEGRATE NATURE’S VALUE INTO POLICIES, DECISIONS AND ECONOMIC SYSTEMS THAT, AMONG OTHER THINGS, FOSTER INNOVATIVE SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGIES. 

THE ONLY ANSWER IS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT THAT ELEVATES THE WELL-BEING OF PEOPLE AND THE PLANET

 – Guterres, UN Secretary General 2021

 

“THE ENORMITY OF THE CRISES,  THAT TEND TO IMPACT UNDER-RESOURCED COMMUNITIES IN PARTICULAR, REQUIRES US TO RESPOND HUMBLY IN THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE, RESPONSIBLE, EFFECTIVE, SENSITIVE AND SUSTAINABLE WAY.

THAT’S THE CORE OF HUMBLE SMILE’S PURPOSE.

THERE IS NO ETHICAL JUSTIFICATION FOR SERVING COMMUNITIES WITH ANYTHING LESS THAN EVIDENCE-BASED BEST-PRACTICES JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE UNDER-REPRESENTED.”

 – D. Weiss, Executive Director, Humble Smile Foundation
