Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere

According to the UN, "poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making". 

United Nations - "Ending Poverty and Hunger" is part of a UN short film series "The Story You are Shaping" created by HUMAN, which premiered at the UN Sustainable Development Summit 2015.

NGAO Society is a non-profit making organization formed with individuals and likeminded community organizations to facilitate the community in realizing its own potential to initiate sustainable change using the Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) Model. NGAO wishes to establish connections between students in the US and communities in Africa (Kenya) to help students collaborate on finding the assets within the community to improve quality of life.


In our interconnected world, we interact with people from different cultures on a daily basis. Assumptions are made, interpreting comments, reactions and behaviors. The result is often miscommunication because of a culture difference. These miscommunications can be extremely costly to organizations and relationships. Real World Solutions provides practical training and coaching in intercultural awareness and competence for professionals and organizations in business, health care, education, and community services.

We achieve this by providing international travel programs in the areas of cultural immersion, wildlife conservation, and leadership development. Walking Tree Travel (WTT) offers a curious and compassionate approach to travel. Unlike a typical tour, our programs are designed for a select group of travelers who seek an authentic international experience that offers the opportunity to effect positive change at home and abroad.
