Our Approach

The Ansara Family Fund makes grants to address the root causes and symptoms of global health inequity and poverty with a focus on rural Haiti. Our mission is to:

  • ensure the right to equitable health care by building resilient, energy-efficient infrastructure and equipping staff in low-resource settings
  • revitalize communities by investing in locally led organizations promoting sustainable livelihoods, agroecology, education and health care as basic needs and human rights
  • change systems by bolstering local, regional, national, and international networks of community-focused and rights-focused organizations, leaders, and funders.

In pursuing these goals the Fund endeavors to contribute to specific UN Sustainable Development Goals, including: SDG 1 (No Poverty), SDG 2 (End Hunger), SDG 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing), SDG 4 (Quality Education), SDG 5 (Gender Equality), and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals.)
