Tell us about your partnerships
To help the integration of all the segments of a community, MFH partners with Churches, Leaders, the elite of community, and Families, who are drawn into the planning, the implementation and the evaluation of all the programs intended to improve the welfare of village-dwellers. Again, just as an aircraft needs a long runway before it can become airborne, so this project needs also help and other partners from other countries in order to achieve its goals.
Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your innovation? If so, where and why?
This pilot innovation is currently targeting the Balega people in the east of the DRC, whose challeges of health care are more critical because medicaments and animal proteins, for example, are often out of reach for this poor community.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
The key factors for the success of this innovation are: Integration and Collaboration. Integration ensures that this project is based on the local resources which are available. Collaboration ensures that the employees of this innovation are working well with other organizations and people outside MFH. The reason for this is that community problems originate from a variety of inter-related causes. Cnsenquently, the solution must be wholistic. For example, health problems may be caused by food problem which may be caused by worldview.
