Medical Aid, Coordination and Development
The medical aid, coordination and development teams of the 1st NAEF are focused on providing high quality and effective medical assistance to vulnerable populations, and to governments and communities struggling to provide services due to war or natural disasters. Dynamic teams of the 1st NAEF deliver vital medical services to civilians to treat crisis and disaster related injuries, diagnose and treat disease, and assist in establishing / increasing / professionalizing medical systems and local capacity to prevent public health catastrophes which can result in death, increased morbidity, and increased instability.
Humanitarian Relief Teams focus on assisting vulnerable populations impacted by war, instability, and natural disasters. Programs are designed to work in partnership and collaboration with governmental entities and other NGOs responding to humanitarian crises across the globe.
Necessities of Life & Community Development
The 1st NAEF recognizes that lasting community development comes from the community itself. Having reliable access to quality food, and consistent power, a community that can sustain itself economically, and nutritionally, are critical components for a successful and thriving society. Our methods work with existing community groups and organizations, as well as to set up groups, in order to learn and respond to what the community determines its needs to be. From providing immediate necessities for living through to governance advisory and mentoring we work to help population’s lives become well again.
Civil Society Engagement
CSE Programs provide a framework for empowering and engaging with populations. Our goal is to assist strategic partners with programs that lead to effective policies that help people and locally supported government institutions, successful narratives production, public awareness and social media campaigns, and comprehensive crisis communications services.
Education and Learning Development
Education is deemed the most effective way of reducing poverty and inequality. In contexts of emergencies and crisis areas, education provides an avenue to move beyond the crisis and builds the foundations for sustainable peace and individual resilience. The 1st NAEF’s goal is to support increased equitable access to education in a holistic manner, using a 360 degree approach to creating opportunity and enabling continuing education for youth and adults.
Countries around the world are experiencing a 'youth bubble' without sufficient jobs or opportunities for the increasing numbers of youth. In areas suffering from instability this can create a public safety issue as young people resort to troubling, illegal, or extremist activities for money and notoriety as well as out of boredom. The 1st NAEF will focus on opportunities for youth to keep them engaged and occupied, as well as to increase educational and employment opportunities.
Peace Support and Public Safety
A main focus of the 1st NAEF is regional stability in conflict zones. We see that comprehensive local capacity development in defence, public safety and security, emergency and aid response, and critical infrastructure protection, that are fully integrated and complimentary to social and community support services are key to sustained peace.
The foundational premise is that if the apparatus for public safety and security, and emergency response services, are functioning in a cohesive and professional manner, the risks associated with high-effect harm instances and further instability against local populations are reduced to a more normal, predictable and manageable level.
Monitoring and Evaluation
The 1st NAEF measure our successes and interim progress through proprietary outcome mapping processes that incorporates all of the objectives from each program area that we are implementing.
Our teams include certified auditors and analysts capable of delivering dynamic assessments of client programs, operations, policies and structures. Our personnel will assist local groups, organizations, and governments in monitoring and evaluating their programs for success.
