In 2014, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea faced the largest Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak in history. The Ebola Intensive Project identified a medical team for both training and monitoring of outreach workers in the field. The medical team, headed by a physician trained in infectious diseases, included registered nurses, public health practitioners, and social workers. Additionally, the project worked directly with the Ministry of Health’s EVD tracers to ensure proper reporting to the government.

Today’s challenging and entrenched issues require donors and their grantee partners to challenge the status quo to truly uncover innovative ideas that will achieve your goals. We expose donors to the various investment tools and options at their disposal based on goals, preferred strategy, risk tolerance, and level of involvement.
Financial solutions alone garner limited success. A strategic approach for transformative solutions must include elements beyond financial investment. We help donors and their grantee partners leverage networks, connections and partnership toward lasting change.
Sustainable solutions begin in communities, and if properly nurtured can be scaled. We seek first to work in partnership with communities already engaged in problem-solving to help elevate and improve upon existing models. Where those solutions haven’t yet revealed themselves we engage with vested community partners and leverage the agility of the grassroots to help expose and grow solutions.
