Who is Tia?

10648188_10152837545225281_6335118067317543355_oTia uses a ‘teach them to fish’ model to train and equip villagers, who live hours from the nearest doctor.  They learn to deliver babies, treat diabetes, handle first aid cases and most importantly, how to tackle their problems together, as an organized community. Our model is sustainable because the local governments commit to resupply the Tia medical kits and provide continuing education.

Thanks to generous donors, like the Ingebritson, Armstrong, Libman and Pakis families, Tia now serves around 192,000 people for less than $5 a person, including overhead.

¿Quién es Tía?

Tía aplica el modelo de “Enseñar a Pescar”, con el cual capacita y equipa a los habitantes (leer mas)

cuyas viviendas o lugares de trabajo se encuentran a horas de distancia del doctor más cercano. En el programa, se les enseña a los “Promotores de Salud” a asistir alumbramientos, a tratar la diabetes, a manejar botiquines de Primeros Auxilios, etc. Pero lo más importante es que, se les enseña a vencer los problemas de salud juntos, como una comunidad organizada. Nuestro Modelo es sustentable dado que los gobiernos locales se comprometen a resurtir los botiquines que les son proporcionados por Tía y a continuar con su capacitación.

Gracias a generosos donadores, como las familias: Ingebritson, Armstrong, Libman y Pakis, Tia hoy atiende a casi 172,000 habitantes por menos de $5.00 USD por persona, incluyendo gastos de operación.
