SPAH has launched the Adopt-A-Village program as its flagship development initiative to transform quality of life for communities.

Under this program a community is evaluated for its needs and then the development program is tailored accordingly. This engages the main elements of medical care, water, sanitation, building facilities and education. 
The local village leadership are encouraged to take ownership in the change process by being involved in the discussions for planning and ultimately the project outcomes and long term custodianship for capacity building.
