RNM is a 501 (c)(3) Faith-Based Non-Profit organization founded in March 2001 in League City Texas with a Mission to help end the Water Crisis in West Africa.
The over-arching goal in our vision and mission that helps establish our founding charter is to significantly reduce the cycle of poverty and disease attributable to the water crisis.
Our 2016-2021 Strategic Plan
Helping communities create sustainable water, sanitation, hygiene, and Christian witness programs in partnership with local churches is just the best way we've found to do that. Why? Because the water crisis affects poverty, women, health and education—and for us it's a spiritual issue.
Some 680 million people lack access to an improved source of drinking water—that's 1 in 9 of us globally, and 5 in 9 in Afriica. In the places we work in West Africa, it's more like 1 in 2.
Great progress is being made globally, but whole people groups are being overlooked—it's the poorest people with the least political power that continue to suffer, and these are the people we are called to serve.
ORGANIZATIONAL MISSION & VISION
Mission & Objectives RNM is committed to addressing the need to remove conditions that lead to abject poverty, disease and ill health, especially among children and women; inadequate skills leading to low productivity & development in targeted communities.
The broad strategic mission of RNM is to work through specific faith based community-driven project efforts to meet the needs of impoverished communities particularly in developing countries, rural areas, and inner cities.This helps RNM target the socio-economic problems associated with the family & human sufferings, especially in 3rd world countries and our inner cities.
Our ultimate mission therefore is to touch lives for Christ & eternity. In addition, RNM aims to minister to urban drug addicts, alcohol abusers and battered women / teenage mothers who desire to be helped through RNM’s faith based approach.
“Any religion that professes to be concerned with the souls of men and is not concerned with the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them, and the social conditions that cripple them is a dry-as-dust religion.”
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The objectives of the organization focus on ways to alleviate the adverse consequences of poverty and illiteracy, such as poor hygienic standards and inadequate skills for gainful employment. Often the poor find themselves in places with unsanitary drinking water or portable domestic water, especially in Africa & the 3rd world.
In the process, we seek to mobilize community support for development initiatives such as drilling and maintaining water wells, providing skills acquisition / training sessions especially in computer technology, and deploying our diagnostic medical tool called TROPIX in rural Clinics and Health Care Centers.
