Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, Infinite Way works to provide disadvantaged rural communities with the skills and resources to overcome health, educational, and environmental challenges in their communities. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and give their communities the chance to educate themselves out of poverty and to create opportunities for success.
HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria are three of the largest causes of disability and death in sub-Saharan Africa, they are preventable and treatable. Infinite Way helps prevent new infections through education and immunization, and build reliable community health systems that can treat patients with quality care, especially in poor, rural and urban communities. Without a strong health system, a swift and effective response to public health emergencies is not possible and can have devastating results on entire communities, as witnessed by the recent outbreaks of Ebola, Malaria and other infectious diseases.
In conjunction with rural communities, Infinite Way provides seminars and classes for entire families and young adults covering a wide range of topics including prevention and care of those living with AIDS. We conduct local seminars and awareness workshops on TB and malaria in remote villages of Central Africa and Haiti. We also provide AIDS prevention kits as well as educational material and free condoms in Universities of Cameroon and Haiti.
In sub-Saharan Africa, 61% of the population does not have access to drinkable water or access to a safe sanitation facility, or toilet. Through our water, sanitation and hygiene projects, Infinite Way increases sustainable access to safe water and sanitation facilities in poor rural and urban communities where there is the most need. We fund the installation of manual water pumps in remote villages to provide desperately needed potable water. To ensure that our work continues long after we have left, we train the local population to maintain the equipment, empowering the community to take charge of their own health.
The organization has established programs to support villagers in their daily struggle to survive. We organize seminars to sensitize local community leaders to the needs of the children such as safe homes, ample food, adequate clothing and encourage their support. Infinite Way organize village meetings to inform and educate the local population about the resources available to them in providing for the needs and well being of their children. We also provide food, clothing, shoes, toys, toiletries, shelters to orphans whose parents have died of AIDS.
Through concerted efforts with selected villages in Cameroon, Infinite Way strives to improve all aspects of village life by holding seminars and educating villagers to become self sufficient. We help them develop numerous acres of Palm groves in their villages by providing financial support to acquire the needed Palm seeds. We also provide them the means of acquiring the necessary Palm Oil Presses in order to extract the oil from their crop.
In third world countries, less than half of the children attend elementary school and only 10% attend secondary level school due to lack of school fees. The number of orphaned and disabled children attending school is negligible. They are deprived of an education but forced to remain at home and work. Therefore many remain uneducated, unproductive and live a beggar’s life.
Infinite Way provides educational material and uniforms to the neediest children living in remote villages in Central Africa and Haiti. In addition we provide new classroom structures, material, and teaching supplies as well as playground equipment where there is none. We also provide wheelchairs and special equipment for disabled children in Central Africa and Haiti. The main focus of Infinite Way is a permanent support for scholarship to facilitate access to higher education which will provide self sufficiency in the future.

With over 20 years of experience eradicating poverty in the world, Marie is a founding member of infinite Way and oversaw the early projects for the organization.
Born in a remote village in Cameroon, Central Africa, Marie fought hard for her way out of poverty. Wanting desperately to educate herself, she succeeded in leaving her tiny village and moved to France where she paid herself through college while raising a family of 5. Her hard work paid off and she received a Bachelor’s degree in Banking & Finance from the University of Paris, Dauphine. She lived and worked in France for 19 years before migrating to the United States.
Never forgetting about her tiny village and the poverty she left behind, Marie decided to give back to her community and started Infinite Way in 2002. While now enjoying her retirement, Marie has decided to continue helping others get out of poverty and live better lives with stronger communities. She has since received several accolades including but not limited to the American Express Global Volunteer Action Fund award since 2003.
