Recipe for a Thriving Community

Our Recipe for Community Development

Based on more than 40 years of experience living and working in the impoverished regions of northeastern Venezuela, the Turimiquire Foundation has developed our Recipe for a Thriving Community as a cohesive four-step blueprint for how an NGO can deliver maximum value in human services to its clients.

Family Planning: Offer women and men the ability to control their fertility.
Education: Offer families real educational opportunities for their children.
Community: Support infrastructure development and sustainable livelihood.
Humanitarian Aid: Provide critical assistance in Venezuela’s current crisis.

This Recipe is now a tested and replicable service delivery model based on years of living with and responding to what low-income families have told us that they need, and carefully observing how and in what order they choose to utilize our services.

We always invest in human capital first, offering the services that are most relevant to addressing the developmental needs of our low-income clients.
