It facilitates people to help themselves and to manage repair programs in the simplest and most cost effective programs. We encourage repair programs that use existing local technology and local budget constraints.

Whereas we will continue to focus our efforts where Schlumberger and other companies’ support and cooperation exist, we will only accept donations on an individual basis. Only contributions in kind, without consideration, may be accepted from commercial companies.
