Barinu Institute for Economic Development is a global educational institution and project based non-governmental organization that was founded with the sole purpose of contributing to the economic development of the poorest regions of the world. Though we believe, encourage and participate in humanitarian aid and relief, we believe it is a temporary solution and in no way a permanent solution to the extreme poverty plaquing a good part of Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia , South America and some parts of Central America.
It is good to provide seedlings and fertilizers to farmers in the poor regions of the world to grow crops, but if there are no roads or bridges for them to take their crops to the markets for sale, then the farmers may not be able to enjoy the full economic benefit of their harvest. That is why one of our focuses is to build roads and bridges in these regions.
There is a saying that goes like this: "Give a man a fish and you save him for day but teach him to fish and and you give him a livelihood." Therefore our goal is not merely to provide materials for the short-term but also to provide the necessary educational training needed for the people of these regions to become self-sustaining.
