These Factors Are Vital for Helping Local People Build Sustainable Lives

At Raptim, we put great value in achieving a world in which every human being leads a healthy and fulfilling life. This is sadly not the case for a large proportion of the population in many developing countries. That is why compassionate humanitarians are needed at vulnerable locations to help ease and make the situation better.

Enabling sustainable lives as a goal

Our history goes back to our very first flight in 1947. Because of our long history we have witnessed injustice, sorrow and suffering throughout. We want to help by being your humanitarian travel partner. It doesn’t matter if you’re a faith-based missionary, volunteer or humanitarian aid worker. Like you, we hope to see a world in which everyone from any country can lead healthy, fulfilling and sustainable lives. Not only in current times, but also for future generations. Strides in three vital areas of development are necessary to make such a world possible. 

  • Education
    Proper education is of crucial importance for any community. Not only because of its tremendous impact on productivity but also due to the influence it has on attitudes and lifestyles. It's a cornerstone of development. Unfortunately, education is not available to all children, especially in developing countries. Many parents simply need their children to work in order to help the family with acquiring shelter, food, and clothes. This is a problem which needs to be overcome. By increasing the quality of education for example, as a result, parents will see the impact it has on their children. These young scholars will be presented with helpful tools which can form valuable assets for any family.
  • Agriculture
    Agriculture plays a critical role in the entire life of a given economy. For decades, it has been associated with the production of essential food crops. Something which still applies to poor countries. Agriculture often is the backbone of a developing economic system. In addition to providing food and raw material, agriculture also provides employment opportunities to very significant percentage of the population. A stable agricultural sector ensures a nation of food security and has the potential to eradicate hunger and decrease poverty. Food security prevents malnourishment that has traditionally been believed to be one of the biggest problems faced by the developing countries.
  • Proper housing
    Housing and health are closely related. Evidence for this claim, gathered by years and years of scientific research, can be used to guide preventive measures related to housing construction, renovation, use and maintenance. This can be used to achieve higher overall health according to WHO's Department of Public Health and Environment: "There is a clear need and opportunity for governments and others to promote health in the course of making investments in housing. International guidance on healthy housing – targeting construction experts, architects and engineers as well as housing agencies and local authorities – would enable action that is scientifically-based, and protects and advances public health.”
