Community Development Focus

IWP’s philosophy is to leave a community after a project more prosperous than it found it before starting a project. Not just because of the project IWP is delivering, but because IWP’s project managers work with community leaders, farmers and businesses to find innovative ways of making effective use of the water and power being delivered to create new business to add value to local crops such as coffee or cocoa, bring in new crops and even bees and cattle, start metal and carpentry shops, etc. IWP will even use some of its profits or humanitarian contacts to fund new business projects to help increase employment, education and wealth in the region.
