Mehiel Foundation tackles the underlying causes of poverty and social injustice in order to deliver lasting change in the lives of underprivileged and vulnerable people.
Poverty entails more than the lack of income and productive resources to ensure sustainable livelihoods. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion, as well as the lack of participation in decision-making.
Clean Water & Sanitation
In 2010, the UN General Assembly recognized access to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right, and called for international efforts to help countries to provide safe, clean, accessible and affordable drinking water and sanitation.
Some 827 000 people in low- and middle-income countries die as a result of inadequate water, sanitation, and hygiene each year, representing 60% of total diarrhoeal deaths. Poor sanitation is believed to be the main cause in some 432 000 of these deaths.
We work with local partners to improve sanitation and provide clean drinking water as well as health education.
Investment into sport in emerging countries is much less than in developed ones, as sport is usually not a top priority in the national budget or in the education system of most developing countries.
We believe in ending poverty through sport by providing the basic tools for childhood development.
By taking part in sports, children are less likely to be negatively influenced by extremist groups, are made to feel important and are kept out of trouble.
Our aim is to educate the young and promote equality for all genders, religions, and creeds. The United Nations has stated that sport is a human right and essential for childhood development. By using sport to reduce poverty, individuals of every age can lead a healthier and more fulfilling life.
171 million people could be lifted out of extreme poverty if all children left school with basic reading skills.
That’s equivalent to a 12% drop in the world total.
Education increases earnings by roughly 10% per each additional year of schooling.
We strongly believe in helping communities help themselves through education.
