Project Next Mile (PNM) is a Canadian non-profit organization that serves to strengthen communities globally through a ‘build with’ approach to partnership. We work with clinical teams and health centres to co-create sustainable communities of practice to improve the standard of health for all. We work through sport to develop local communities, promote gender equity, and foster strong local leadership.
The idea for Project Next Mile was developed on the realization that the greatest challenge in the pursuit of sustainable healthcare development is not the delivery of services to those in need, but rather the building of local capacity to strengthen communities for health impact. Partnership with clinicians and local communities in low and middle income countries through knowledge exchange and skill building initiatives is essential to meet local needs and to sustain the journey for the next mile. This is our work.
We are working hard to build capacity within resource scare regions of our world. Find out how you can help!
