AmenaZone Community Development Program

 Building the Community from Seed to Harvest 


Working with the community leaders, educators and business owners we can create programs to enhance the quality of life for individuals within a community and building sustainable solutions and passive revenue streams that will support and vitalize the community for years to come.


People and communities need nourishment and light to grow. We need to inject new life, passion and resources into the community and establish sustainable lifelines for the future generations. By developing long term relationships with all the support systems and resources within the community we can bring up our youth in their own neighborhoods and together we can grow, live and flourish.


Working with the community to identify the most pressing needs both from an individual need and community need basis. Identify the problems and come together to solve them for the present and the future.


The classes and electives that were offered through schools in the past developed life skills that are essential to live. Classes such as home economics, speech, music, and trade classes like art, ceramics, woodshop, and mechanics have gone away from budget cuts. Our youth need to be taught how to manage in the real word. We need to teach them these skills and we know it takes a community to raise up its youth.


The Community is alive and brimming with experience. By involving the business community in raising up our youth to be fully integrated in the flow and process of business opportunities for our youth exist to discover their passions and interests and be able to test the waters in different types of businesses and see where their interest and talents emerge.


The world has changed and so has the workforce. The world economics has also been affected by the recent pandemic. It is essential that we bring up our youth living, working, and building a strong community.


We need to teach, to acknowledge, Honor, and respect each other and support and raise up each other for the betterment of all.


The greatest gift one person can give to another it to pay attention to another person and really listen. The need for human connection in this disconnected electronic world is more needed than ever. The experience, knowledge that can be transferred to our youth is invaluable. Today many families are broken, disconnected, and just too busy to provide the time and dedication needed to provide the life tools that our youth do not have access to. This dramatically decreases their opportunity to develop the critical skills required to move through life.


It takes a community. From A-Z we need to teach the youth from babies wearing diapers, to teens designing better ones, then young adults manufacturing, marketing and selling them.

Building the Community from Seed to Harvest

The Seed

The Safe Water 4 ALL “Button” is the seed and it's “flying” around on websites, emails, texts, etc., just like a dandelion blowing in the wind. Then randomly someone connects to it, clicks, and the seed begins its life.

The Donor

The seed is placed in good hands, a safe environment, given a little light, some clean water, it sprouts, and the journey begins. Donations are the lifeline for the long-term health of the community.

Our 3rd, 4th, & 5th Graders

The sprouts are planted and when they break the surface the first leaf opens, and growth and nurturing begins.

This age group are brought into the community with Family to be introduced an to gather the “Spare Change” within the community and then put those resources toward Global Change.

Our 6th & 7th Graders

The plant grows and begins to spread its roots and take hold stretch out creating the infrastructure to support itself as it grows taller and to ensure that it's its roots will keep it from toppling over in challenging times. This age group sorts, rolls and accounts for the change gathered.

Our 8th & 9th Graders

As the plant becomes a tree its need change. It requires layers of soils and nutrients time perfectly to make sure it has everything it needs to produce the ultimate fruit.

This age group focuses on the process of accounting for the funds collected and then do all the banking required, reporting, and management reporting.

Our 10th & 11th Graders

As the plant matures it needs a skilled person to provide care, pruning, trimming, and mostly to make sure bit of energy from the sun, nutrition, and water food goes to the maximize the potential of the flower and fruit.

This age group is brought up as junior management and works within the community to develop relationships with business owners for collection opportunists and to communicate the opportunities and the benefits available to all merchants and community members through the AmenaZone.

Our Seniors, 12th Graders

Now there has been revenue collected and there's accountability. Business practices need to be completed and then profit-sharing distributions and then The Art-of-Giving begins. Then the seed is sent out and the process begins again and then is repeated endlessly.

This age group focuses on business development and sustainability. Community and business leaders work closely with seniors and complete senior projects on community development programs and conduct focus groups, intern fairs, think tanks, and job training courses. Job placement, business, and community leadership are the Goals.

Social Capital

“It’s not what you earn, but what you give, that makes the difference”

Traditions are created when people work together towards a common goal to protect the lives of the people and develop lasting programs that ensure a positive future. Teaching our youth, the “Art and Benefits of Giving” today will provide opportunities in the future.
