The FAAVM is a nonprofit, charitable organization. Our major focus involves using various multifunctional civil rights programs to help our mostly disadvantaged, underprivileged minorities as men, women and children. Via the FAAVM multilateral humanitarian systems, and activities, we're able to reach out to these people who are very difficult to reach via more traditional-type programs. We then use these activities to help improve the quality of life of these disadvantaged communities. Our all-volunteer network nationwide and worldwide program is comprised of several components, all having to do with providing meaningful and positive educational, socio-cultural, spiritual, economic and overall human development activities for our mostly economically disadvantaged nationwide and worldwide.

Poverty should and can be completely eradicated, as it largely caused by human factors. Over the past years there has been a lot of Poverty Alleviation Programs designed to break the cycle of poverty in many households and communities in the world. The result is remarkable, but there is still a lot to be done. Poverty alleviation involves the strategic use of tools such as education, economic development, health and income redistribution to improve the livelihoods of the worlds poorest by governments and internationally approved organizations. They also aim at removing social and legal barriers to income growth among the poor. Why are these tools important?

Health, food and water: Many programs aim at feeding kids at school and providing health services as well. This encourages parents to send the children to school and keep them there. If children have food to eat, and are healthy, they can learn and respond to the needs of the programme.

                     Mutual funds and investment funds

 An investment fund is a pool of money collected from many investors that is used by the fund manager to purchase and sell stocks, bonds, or other securities in accordance with the fund’s investment objectives. The most common type of investment fund is a mutual fund. In Canada, there are about 2,800 mutual funds designed for small, medium, and large investors. They offer a wider selection of investment opportunities and management expertise at a lower investment cost than most investors could access on their own.

 Individual investors choose which mutual fund to invest in based on the stated objective and strategy of the fund, as well as its risk profile and its performance and fees. Investors don’t make decisions about which securities the mutual fund purchases. That’s the role of the investment fund manager (often called a “fund manager”) and the portfolio manager, as described below.

Education: Quality education empowers people to take advantage of opportunities around them. It helps children get knowledge, information and life skills they need to realize their potential. Training teachers, building schools, providing education materials and breaking down that prevent children from accessing education are important features of poverty alleviation programmes.

Impact of poverty: Absolute poverty results in extreme hunger, starvation and malnutrition. People (and children) become vulnerable to preventable diseases such as cholera, dysentery and tuberculosis, with no access to health services and medications. Death rates rise.  Relative poverty on the other hand, forces people to engage in behaviors that expose them to diseases such as HIV Aids. Whiles they may not starve to death, they may be living on unhealthy foods, which ultimately weaken their immunity and expose them to diseases

Vertical Axis Wind Turbines offer a very reliable, efficient and cost-effective alternative to conventional Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines. Vertical Axis Wind Turbines are less intrusive visually, even in areas such as National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These turbines are quieter, more bird and bat-friendly and are less expensive to maintain compared to horizontal turbines. The 4N-55 is a 55kw rated vertical axis wind turbine. Three years in development, the radical new design is manufactured in the UK and incorporates a wealth of patented design features, which greatly enhance power generating output at low wind speeds and significantly reduce the total costs of ownership. The design team includes world leading aerodynamic, mechanical and electrical engineers.
