Happiness Spreads Through African Villages Thanks to Growing Contributions from Long Term Care Insurance Professionals
Date:11/24/2008

KIRKLAND, Wash., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- AIDS-plagued Kenya isn't on the big-bailout list, but an efficient, grass-roots movement is afoot that could produce more results than mountains of poorly-managed money. The movement is powered by human spirit and enough cash to ignite self-sufficiency and unstoppable progress. Called the Rabuor Village Project (RVP) (http://www.rabuorvillageproject.org), it's funded in part by LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP), one of America's most experienced long term care insurance agencies and a few of the nation's top insurance carriers.

RVP began in 2003 as a Seattle-based campaign to help one small village bootstrap its way from disease and poverty to health and vitality. That village -- Rabuor, in West Kenya -- has become a model of holistic self-regeneration, and the program has spread to 14 nearby villages. In time the Rabuor model could transform villages throughout Kenya and countries beyond. While global poverty may take billions to eradicate, the RVP magic happens one village at a time. And it shows signs of growing exponentially, like the Internet. RVP was started by Loyce Mbewa-Ong'udi, who emigrated from Rabuor in 1996 to work as a professional woman in America's non-profit sector.

RVP's impact is best seen in the spirits of the children, many with a single parent or no parents thanks to HIV/AIDS. When Megan Clark of LTCFP arrived on a recent visit, "I was greeted by 125 nursery students singing me a welcome song," she says.

Others in the long term care insurance business, who now support RVP as well, include John Hancock Life Insurance Company (A unit of Manulife Financial Corporation); and Online Insurance Services
