Extreme poverty in rural villages throughout Central Asia is cyclical. Generation after generation continues in poverty resulting in illness, malnutrition and high rates of childhood mortality. Children grow up with little hope for a strong future. Many of the villagers lack the information necessary to develop viable and permanent solutions to the daily struggles they face. Solutions providing cleaner water, sufficient food, adequate education, wellness habits and a source of family income seem impossible when faced with the struggles of those living in extreme poverty.
