What is it?

Bloom for Life is a NGO dedicated to teaching rural, uneducated, and poverty-stricken locations about holistic health, sustainable living, and spiritual connectedness through long-term application and free resources for change.

It’s mission is to empower and educate, provide resources for health and sustainability, and optimize capacity for change in the world.

It will most likely work most in the East, predominantly in low-developing countries in the world which need access to the essential resources provided.

Its mission is so beneficial, as rural areas without resources are more commonly flocking to cities to be provided means for survival. In effect, preventable health illness are on the rise, and the environment continues to suffer. It’s a cyclic effect lesser realized by the mass population, but that’s why Bloom for Life’s efforts are that much more important.

As stated by the Oxford Journal,

The emphasis on poverty as well as other social and economic factors has led to a tendency to focus on those issues rather than directly addressing health issues. “

With the concentration of poverty, low health status and high burden of disease in rural areas, there is a need to focus specifically on improving the health of people in rural and remote areas, particularly if the urban drift is to be reversed.

And from the 1999 study, “The global community should recognize that good health is a way out of poverty. It results in a greater sense of wellbeing and contributes to increased social and economic productivity. The impact of ill health on productivity affects not only the poor, but societies and economies as well”.

This is where Bloom for Life aims to take action, and you can get involved to take part in this global change.

All team-members will likely have travel and basic accommodation cared for once the NGO is funded and launched. At the present, opportunity for payment has not been planned out and is a long way coming down the road, but having partners to ensure this NGO’s success is essential in the present..

You will take part in creating resources that will be available world-wide. You’ll help inspire hundreds of community members in rural locations, and develop alternatives for those in urban setting. You’ll transform your own life and learn from experience and example… and most importantly, you’ll collaborate with brilliant, motivated, and like-minded innovators ready to pursue a project outside of themselves.

This is Bloom for Life, and its mission is to help create a more nourished, sustainable, and united world.

Be Involved!

A campaign will be launched later this year to fund certain projects – please keep an eye out for that!
